There were, I think, ten of us, and the weather was brilliant (the promised rain did not arrive until I was dismounting from the bike back home in South London, but it then came with a vengeance). The destination turned out to be the Street Cafe in Newmarket, and the distance was going to be 60 miles, which meant that the route had to be an ingenious one. Much of it was indeed on narrow unclassifieds, but of a better class than the mossy goat tracks some of us have inadvertently become used to. Personally I think Alan planned it by requesting the routes for the Sunday Ride from every local bike club, and then just stitched them together. There can be no other explanation for the inordinate number of cyclists we encountered. It was actually a very good route on many roads I have never ridden before. The food at the cafe was good, at humane prices and with prompt service. Half a dozen of us parked, with permission, in the cafe back yard. The staff seemed strangely hostile but we blagged our way through it. This may be connected with the fact that we had actually parked in the wrong back yard. Route back was not quite as devious, but still very good. The pace was relaxed (but at no time funereal - why did I get so much stick for using that word before for a tiny part of the last relaxed ride?). Total distance 114 miles. We finished at the Boreham McDonalds shortly before three, Many thanks to Alan for leading and Clive for sweeping. Pictures have been posted.

Regards
Chris J.
