A Sunday ride to Witham in various degrees of mist and fog – 18th December 2016

There were only two at the start in Chelmsford, Dave S and John B (leader). Dave R and I joined them at the Fig Tree in Maldon for elevenses. A crowd from Essex Roads, which passed me on Mundon Road shared the room with us and were very noisy.

The visibility had improved by the time John took us off to Witham coming in from the north over the huge railway bridge. The Battisford Court (Wetherspoons) was relatively quiet and presented no problem finding a table. Dave S bought the drinks; what a nice man! We were then joined by Phil and caught up with his news.

Only Dave R was interested in a tea stop so took himself off to Terling. The rest of us made our way south splitting near Woodham Walter, three to Chelmsford area and me back to Wickford. Ride length 47 miles and ending with all lights flashing.
