We have another ride coming up on the 25th. It will be hosted by Alan Goodman starting at 0900. It's starting in Hemel Hempstead so those of you down South that can't make it to our rides in Suffolk here's your chance. I unfortunately can't make it but you will be in good hands. According to Alan the route is a little bumpy but there's beautiful scenery along the way. Alan has inform me he is able to adjust the route if hills will be an issue. There is plently of free parking at the meeting point, along with shops/pubs in case anyone needs to grab a snack for the road. If you need to contact Alan let me know.
So 0900 on the 25th and here's the route.

I don't think I'm going to get to this one but I can recommend Will's rides... Great fun and some lovely cycling roads up there!

I suspect it will be just Dave and I with the short notice but I figured I'd post it anyway because you can't come if you don't know.

Finally finished Sundays video and write up. Been one of those weeks.

Met up with Dave for what was suppose to be 60 miles. It turned into 72 for me and 81 for him. We set out with the sun on our faces, but that soon changed as we hit the Fens which the fog had thoroughly blanketed. We reached the Denver Complex in good time. I wish the video was better but it was just too foggy. We stopped for tea and cake at Denver Golf course where we met a nice DF rider who said he lived ...

in Sedge Fen. We followed him toward what we thought was Sedge Fen which took us off our planned route but with the promise of seeing some new roads we hadn't used before. There must of been a misunderstanding because we were headed toward Swaffham not Sedge Fen. After a fair bit of unplanned climbing we had added 12 miles to my trip and 21 to David's. Talk about being taken for a ride. Lesson learned, hope you in enjoy the video anyway.

Let me know if you are planning any rides in 2016- particularly in the area to the north and east of Ware (where I live by the weir !) I do a lot of riding around this part of the UK along with occasional rides around parts of Europe.
