Early morning rain probably put a few riders off turning out but 9 of us gathered at the Town Hall for this ride to Pebmarsh. It wasn’t long though before the clouds broke and we enjoyed a warm dry and sunny day.
A brisk ride to elevenses at Greenstead Green saw us arrive there at 10.50 after 21 miles.

The increasing tail wind helped us via an indirect route to the newly re-opened Kings Head at Pebmarsh where the management deviated from their “Sunday Lunch” policy and served us some very tasty huffers.
The increasing wind was a factor in my decision to shorten my planned route to tea at Tiptree where we called at Perrywoods. However we arrived back in Chelmsford rather earlier than usual after a rather shorter than normal 58 miles.
