For the Full Member Social Ride this month I thought to use the route planned for the cancelled February run. So its a circular route out to Red lodge for coffee and back to Maldon for brunch using some of our best roads. Total distance looks around 120 miles. Those wanting a greater distance could go 'doggin' around the Dengie :wink: .

Please meet to leave Sainsburys Springfield Chelmsford at 9.30am............Richard P.

Richard, could you let us all know who leaves the group to go 'Doggin' around the Dengie?
I Didnt know the Dengie was classified as a 'Doggin' area :mrgreen:

That last 'doggin' incident will last me for a while so I'll pass on that. :wink:

Fingers crossed I'll get my pass stamped for the main ride out.

All things being equal I'll be there. New brakes pads to bed in and new rear tyre to scrub, so I may well start off the day as backmarker.

I'm hopefull that 'doggin' this time refers to the salubrious activity I believe it to be :twisted: and not the 'pikey' :shock: induced activity experienced by your goodself previously.

Scotty and Mike you are on the right line - yes I was thinking 'leaping Lurchers on the Dengie'. Funny how others were getting more excited about the doggin than the ride - strange what pastimes some must have :) ........................Richard P.

A sickly child makes me very unlikely for this.

Can I therefore request someone makes some notes and lets me have them for the TUG write up.

Cheers.

Wow what a great ride in the rain. Seven brave soles turned out and the conditions weren't as bad as forecast although there was a bit of a cloud burst as we left the cafe in Maldon about 2.30 -too wet for the doggers!

Thanks to the back markers Spider and Bruce and a special thanks to Gary for the Crafty Plugger!!!

Yes the Crafty Plugger strikes again. I got another puncture about 5 miles from Red Lodge. Made it to the cafe but sods law - I came without my tankbag due to the rain and it contained my plugger. Gary's was just as good and he had a compressor too! What a lovely chap :) ...........................Richard P.
