CTC ChelmsfordCity Sunday Ride to Kersey, 8 June 2014.

Nine riders set off from the Town Hall under clear blue skies on a warm summer Sunday morning. Keeping up a steady pace we took the usual route to Marks Tey via Wickham Bishops, Tiptree and Messing, arriving at the Bungalow Diner for elevenses spot on 11am.

For a variety of reasons only three riders continued to lunch at Kersey. The north Essex and South Suffolk countryside looked stunning in the clear light with fluffy patches of Cumulus cloud decorating the sky. Kersey is simply a classic picturesque English village and in the Bell Inn we were provided with excellent sandwiches and trimmings along with well-kept ale.

We stopped for tea and cake in the garden of the Greenstead Green farm shop before heading back towards Chelmsford. I recorded 81 miles, a bit more than our normal ration these days.

  1. I did a similar, if much shorter loop, returning mostly on the other side of the A12 via Silver End, Terling and Little Baddow (including some encouragement as I went up North Hill from the many people enjoying the Open Gardens). Only 54 miles for me, but a perfect June day to stretch legs and distances. Glad you enjoyed your full day.
