Since there were no better offers I reprised a ride from last year which had only one attendee. B184 (obviously), B1052 through Linton to Brinkley, and then unclassified through Six-Mile Bottom and the Wilbrahams for a brief stint on the A14 to Milton and the Tesco Costa. Return by same route to end run at the Dunmow Triumph dealer. Seven participants, great weather, 95 miles and no interesting incidents. Pictures from AGT and run have been posted.

Regards
Chris J.

Chris et al, whilst it was a short ride it was very enjoyable on a nice selection of roads. Thanks to the other rides for a professional ride and thanks to Chris for leading.

The post-AGT rides have tended to be short; the idea being that participants can get back for a late lunch. Longer ones would make life easier, since we would have a much greater choice of destinations. A survey done some years ago indicated that 50% wanted them longer, and 50% shorter. No help there. Glad you enjoyed it such as it was.

Did I mention that it was pretty blustery?

A footnote. There was a complaint about an unexpected bump on the road from Brinkely to Six-Mile Bottom. That was a pussycat. If you continue on the B1052 past Brinkely, and take the next left, there is a real bump which, if you are on a sportsbike, will land you on the tank and leave you singing treble for quite a while afterwards!
