Weather isn't looking to great for Sunday. I'll be there but looking for a show of hands if anyone else is going?
 
David has pulled out due to his accident last month and the advice he got from his doctor to pull back a bit on the riding.

I will be along. We will be passing the Fort St George in Cambridge and 5 miles from Anywhere in Upware but if folks also want to bring their lunch or buy when we stop then they have the option.
 
Phone 07720-598269 if anyone needs last minute directions.

I was worried no one was going to show up but to my surprise Brian was fixing a leak when I arrived.(He organised the ride so I expect him there) To my surprise Brian wasn't in his Evo-k. Turns out it had a unfortunate tussle with his carport. He was on a new Bacchetta Giro 700. We were joined shortly by John and Mark, turns out John had a slow leak as well. I didn't get my pre-ride video with the camera because we were repairing leaks.
John's leak would come back to haunt us about 5 miles into the ride. The patch job didn't fix the leak and he didn't have a spare tube so he choose to turn back  home. Which was just after we had repaired Brian's second puncture/pinch. After that it was smooth sailing until we'd had a pint and recovered a bit in Cambridge. We came out to set off and Brian had another puncture, so after a short walk/ride to Halfords we were ready for the road again. The rest of the ride was uneventful except for the weather turning a bit worse on us. All in all a Sunday well spent, thanks for watching.

Any plans for any more?

I'm just outside Ely and would welcome the odd recumbent group ride rather than solo all the time.

Currently on an ICE B2, but on the lookout for a twin 700C bike.

I also need a group that's happy to stop briefly every 45 mins or so, as I'm a T1 diabetic and neeed to periodically check blood sugars during exercise.

Cheers, Dave

Time to hit the road again. We're headed to Oxborough to enjoy a nice meal and a pint or two at the Bedingfeld Arms. While we're there we'll also make time for anyone interested seeing Oxborough Hall. I'm not sure about the weather just yet. Looks like rain is in the forecast at the moment, but it's a bit early to be sure. Long as steady showers aren't expected the ride will be a go. We'll be setting off from Angel's Café in Mildenhall and parking is free and unlimited for those who may need to drive. We'll meet for 0830 when the café opens for a hot drink before setting off. All the important details are below, if I've missed anything please let me know.

Route: http://www.bikemap.net/en/route/3293021 ... oxborough/

meeting time and local: 0830 on the 11 Oct. 2015 8 Chiswick Ave, Mildenhall, Bury Saint Edmunds IP28 7AY

Lunch stop: http://www.bedingfeldarms.co.uk/

point of interest: http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/oxburgh-hall/ there is a fee to enter the Hall grounds

Please feel free to join us. We have no problem stopping, we typically do every 8 to 10 miles for various reason anyway.
