Associate/Member Social ride 29th August

Post by Mick Hewitt » Tue Aug 03, 2021 4:27 pm

Hi all.
August's social ride is to Lackford Lakes, Bury St. Edmunds. This is a Suffolk Wild Life Trust with toilets and small cafe run by volunteers selling sandwiches, tea etc. Good idea to bring a picnic with you as there's benches to use.

Lackford Lakes (IP28 6HX).
Meet: Sainsbury's Springfield (CM2 5PA).
Time: 09:00 for 09:30 departure.
Full tank of fuel.
Distance: About 115 miles total.
Finish at MacD Regiment Way - about 2ish.

See you there.
Mick and Alan

15.5 bikes (Joe's Indian counts as one and a half!). Cool overcast start developed into quite a nice day. As to the route; I sometimes feel as if Mick has cut Essex into square miles, mixed them up, and then laid them back again at random. Individual places and roads are familiar, but their relation to each other is strange and new. I am sure the Bird Sanctuary at Lackford Lakes was delightful but to the best of my knowledge nobody visited it, preferring to hang out and gossip. No known mishaps. Got back to Regiment Way around 2pm after 117 miles. Many thanks to Mick and Alan. Pictures have been posted.
