It turned out to be a lovely warm day despite the threat of showers on the weather forecast and with 21 bikes in the party, plus a further few for the FMT Training Run, we really owned Sainsbury's car park. Mick wasn't afraid of unclassifieds and there was heavy use of markers at times. He maintained a consistent unforced pace which suited associates (4 of them) and the full members very well. I think we were a bike short when we got to the Garden Centre but, since nobody could remember who was missing, that was OK! Unfortunately we arrived at the restaurant dead on 11:30, when they stopped serving breakfast, but did not start with lunch until 12:00, so unless you were one of the fortunate few who blagged a bacon sandwich the menu was a bit Marie Antoinette - cake! The ride back was equally pleasant and just after 14:00 we ended the run at Boreham after just over 100 miles. Alan did sterling service as back marker. Pictures from the run (and a couple of the FMT group) have been posted.
