Have a good ride we will have about 30 cm of snow by then so time to buy some studs for the bikes and just go free riding over through the forests :lol: .

Hope to be at club night in February so see some of you then provide I can get out of Sweden by road :!: .

In the meantime Happy new year to all at EAMG. George

A very successful run. 17 bikes, balmy temperatures for the time of year, and no rain. There was even some sun on the way back. The route was a masterclass in stretching out 30 miles to twice as many without actually going off-piste and the short muddy lane was good fun (but it was even better fun to hear people complaining about it afterwards). Half a dozen left after the Rushbrook Arms because they wanted a longer run. 120 miles to Dunmow, and I got back home in time to clean the bike, which needed it badly. Thanks to Mick and Alan for sweeping, and of course to Richard for organising and leading. Pictures have been posted.

Regards
Chris J.

Thanks Richard and the rest of the gang for a nice enjoyable relaxing ride even if some nearly off road experience was also added in just for good measure. Thanks also for Your and others observation that my rear tyre was on its last legs after arriving back at Boreham.

Thank you Richard and Alan for putting the mockers on it as on leaving to head home a warning of low pressure was indicated. After arriving home and having inspected the tyre I discovered that I had picked up a nail so that has settled it, a new tyre will be fitted hopefully by Wednesday. Funnily enough I had run a check on the pressures about 10 miles out and everything was okay that point. The bike is now clean ready for the next ride out.

Cheers

Tony

Thanks Richard. Perfect length for January. All went very well, although unexpected mud appearing round bends does scare the pants off me. Looking forward to the year ahead.

Thanks for leading the ride Richard, a very well planned and Excellent route in my opinion. Also thanks to Mick H for tail ending.

The 5 of us that carried on (regardless) rode to St.Ives, Cambridgeshire. We covered around 230 miles and was home at 5.15pm. :D

Yes it was a great day to extend the route Phil - would have liked too myself but had my flock to tend. All seemed to have had a good day in warm conditions so thanks for the good turn out and to Mick and Alan for tail ending...........................Richard
