The Full Member Social Ride this month will be to Aldeburgh which may be less crowded now that the schools have gone back. The route will be about 185 miles with a tea stop on the outward leg and fuel on the return at about 150 miles.

Lunch options: Fish and chips on the sea wall. Bring your own packed lunch or visit one of a number of cafes in the town - now of which will take the whole group!

Please meet to leave Sainsburys Springfield Chelmsford at 9.30am. Ride to finish at Mac Donalds Boreham Services..................Richard P.

A very enjoyable day. Warm and sunny, but not too warm. There were 17 bikes at the start at the time I last counted, almost all either KTM or BMW. The outward run was quite brisk at times, with a stop at the Lakeside Cafe near Stowmarket. A lot of the roads from there to Aldeburgh were new to me. Big queues at the Fish & Chippies. Mr Smartypants (me) dodged these by finding a little off-street pizza shack. The new generation of seagulls lack the audacity which their forefathers had. Journey back also novel and fun until the stop at Needham Lake, after which it was still fun but more familiar. Alan marked on the way back and on the way out ... was it Doug? The run finished at McD's in Chelmsford pretty much dead on 17:00 after 189 miles. Only half the participants were left by then but this was through planned early departures. No known disasters. Many thanks to Richard for yet another excellent route. Pictures have been posted.

Regards
Chris J.

Thanks for a good turn out and to those who commented. It was a lovely day for a coastal trip which seemed to be enjoyed by all. On the odd occasion markers did not stop where they were clearly visible which caused a couple of bikes to go past a junction but they soon turned an nobody was lost. Particular thanks to the two sweepers - Alan and Colin....................................................Richard
