PARKING UPDATE!

Histon Football Club have installed gates on the road leading to their car park, and now charge £2 per car to park.
To avoid the risk that our cars are locked-up before we return, please note the change in starting point.

10.00 a.m at

Cambridge Rd "Green"
Impington
Cambridge
CB24 9PS

https://goo.gl/maps/gKqQRLoFBd42

Directions: Take junction 32 exit off A14, and head north on B1049 signed towards Histon and Cottenham.
After just 150 yards, turn left at the traffic lights, and follow the road round to the left, and park adjacent to the green "island" on Cambridge Road.

Looks like this one is a no go guys. As it stands Dave and Brian have pulled out. I was hoping the weather would take a turn in our favor but it's only gotten worse and now its showing a chance of icy rain. I'm going to pass on this one as I'm having flashbacks of last January's ride.
Sorry for the let down but I think this is the best call this one.

I think that's a very sensible decision looking that the forecast!
We've got snow showers here in Hemel Hempstead today.
 
Hope to see you all when Spring arrives!

Sunday 27th is now in the Diary - I'd go for the St. Ives trip we couldn't do earlier in the year. Seem to remember planning to have lunch up at a Pub in St. Ives, too. Route https://goo.gl/maps/e96wRJR6Ugn

As promised, details for a ride on the 10th of June. We're riding thru Thetford forest again, I've only been waiting to do this again for near on 2 years.
I know hoarder is in and Dave said he's a maybe. I haven't spoken to Atlasshrugged but Wonderbadger said he's free as well so there will be at least 3 to 5 of us not including randoms. I'm going to set our meet time for 0800 and pushing off for 0830 for any stragglers. Angel's Cafe opens a 0800 so those of us who'd like a hot drink of some food before setting off can get their fix. This ride is a 50 miler give or take a few miles guys, so be prepared for a nice long ride. We'll be stopping midway at Elveden Inn for a pint at least and maybe some food depending on the timing. Packing a lunch or something to keep you going isn't a terrible idea. 


SHOWTIME: 0800 10TH OF JUNE WITH A 0830 SHOVE OFF
MEETING LOCATION: ANGELS CAFE http://www.angels-cafe.net/ 8 Chiswick Ave, Mildenhall, Bury Saint Edmunds IP28 7AY
ROUTING: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Kza8g ... sp=sharing
MIDWAY DETOUR: http://www.elvedeninn.com/
PARKING: THERE'S PLENTY OF FREE PARKING AROUND TH CAFE

As always we welcome all riders and don't let the distance put you off we only go as fast as our slowest rider. More than one of us knows the area so splitting up the group is no problem. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Off to Thetford Forest again after two years, it was well worth the wait. It was just Jon and I setting off but thanks to two unplanned stops we were soon joined by Andy. The weather was as good as it gets, the company was superb as always, and roads gave as much as they took. I think I'd like to do that ride most days if I could.

TIME: 0730 SHOW, AND 0800 PUSH OFF ON THE 7TH
LOCATION: SCAMPER PARKING LOT IN SOHAM, PLENTY OF FREE PARKING IF NEEDED Northfield Business Park, Northfield Rd, Soham, Ely CB7 5UE

Sadly unable to make this - I'll be at Curborough for the pedal car race at the weekend.

Have a great ride!
