This ride doesn't seem to like me. This is my third go at it and once again there was calamity. The winds were up for the ride to Denver and to top it off I had a loss crank on the off drive side. I slowed us down quite a bit for the first 6 or 7 miles but thanks to John showing up I was able to fix the crank by the time I got to 10 mile bank. Like I said before the wind was pushing us back pretty good on the way to Jenyns pub but we had it on our backs heading home which is the way we like it. Usual suspects all showed up (Jon, Dave, and Brian) with a guest appearance from Wobbly John to save the day with a crank tool, doesn't sound appropriate I know but its true. All and all a great time looking forward to the next, thx for showing guys, and thx for watching the videos

Back by popular demand!
Looks like a ride to Bury St. Edmund for breakfast is in order. We haven't done this in quite sometime, really looking forward to it. I've done a quick map to show the perspective route as it may change the morning of but The starting location is fixed. Due to the location I can't find free parking so there will be a pay parking area in the details below, which is very cheap. I have the Station Bar and Grill as the location for Breakfast but that may well change on the morning depending on the gang. Hoarder, Davyboy, and Atlasshrugged have all confirmed they're going. As always all are welcome join in on the fun and feel free with to message me with any questions.

Vitals
TIME: DEC 3RD @0800
LOCATION: NEWMARKET QUEEN VICTORIA JUBILEE CLOCK
ROUTING: https://goo.gl/maps/jvUNbXmA7Bw
PARKING: Forest Heath and St Edmundsbury Councils
Rous Road

The ride should be over by 1300. It cost 1 quid for 3hrs and charges don't start until 11, so no problem there.

I think I covered everything, see you there.

Parking solution, thx Jon.



Just a quick comment: Free all-day parking on-street, not too far from the Clock Tower - B1063 Old Station Road, direction heading away from Newmarket, beyond junction with All Saints Road. It's adjacent to the bottom of the Newmarket Gallops, so watch out for highly-strung racehorses crossing the road (their reaction to 'bents is not predictable - DAHIKT). At that time on a Sunday morning, there'll be plenty of spaces (and if you're unlucky, horses and their jockeys).

Recommended as Rous Road Car Park may reject any payment made before 11.00 am.

Up early and on the road in the dark, and I mean very dark. I was joined by the usual suspects, Jon, David, and Brian. We were also joined by Mike who drove in from Norwich for the ride.
Turns out I better start paying more attention to the details on the maps I make as I routed more climbing than I like to do in a year lol. Perfect way to break in a new bike I guess. I should have known better when Jon seemed excited by he route. Everything went to plan for the most part except The Smokehouse being closed for breakfast. To be fair I think we came out on top as the food at the Scandinavia Tea House was lovely.
The ride back in was nice and flat for the most part. Which is good because between the cold and the ride into Bury my legs were a bit taxed. For a December ride though I have to say we did fair pretty good for temps, while it was chilly out I never felt cold.

I hope everyone has warm clothes to wear. We're off for another ride and in the cold. I can feel the chill in my bones already. Ok, now that I've got the
pre-ride moaning out of the way. We'll be riding from Histon to St. Ives on an orbital route, oh and there's much less climbing this time 679 vs.181. Just as a disclaimer Hoarder did the routing so if we do end up on the random wickedly steep hill you know who to blame, lol. I know everyone knows but layers will be needed for this ride. I don't expect it o be much warmer than 7c or 8c plus there is a chance of rain but it's a bit too soon to be sure. I'll be going as long as the roads are free of snow and ice. We'll stopping in St. Ives for food and possibly a pint or two depending where we stop. I'm rambling so here's the details..


VITALS
TIME: 21 Jan 2018 meeting time 1000
RALLY POINT: Glass World Stadium, Bridge Rd, Impington, Cambridge CB24 9PH
LOCATION: Histon Football Club to St. Ives and back on a different route

It's roughly a 30 mile route.

Hope to see you there, as always all are welcome and feel free to contact me with any questions.
Don't forget to dress warm!
