The day started well with six of us riding out of Chelmsford and I had the song Perfect Day playing in my head! Our route took us across Stow Maries Aerodrome where we met a large group of cyclists from Leigh on Sea.
I failed to get our group to The Fig Tree by 11 o’clock so we stopped about a half a mile short for two minutes silence.
John D and Dave R joined us at elevenses. After refreshment we all moved off with Eric and Heather intending to leave us on the way. Unfortunately at the bottom of Cromwell Hill Heather took a tumble. She made light of it and told us to continue.
We arrived at The Alma about 13:15 to find they were only doing Sunday roasts and they were full. After a brief discussion we decided to head for Perrywood Garden Centre. There we had light snacks (mainly scones) washed down by tea. With this being the 2nd ride in a row with no alcohol I’m becoming to wonder if we are becoming a temperance group!
After a combined “lunch” and tea stop we made our various ways back home. I had accumulated 62 miles when I got back to Chelmsford in failing light.
