Following the Mimram 2* Ride (31st January 2016)

This was a Central London CTC Ride led by Richard Philpott.

  1. I missed the start as Essex Road don’t allow bicycles.
  2. This is why the ride advertised the train from further up at Finsbury Park.
  3. Potters Bar was the destination – I arrived about an hour behind.
  4. Made my own way to the lunch stop.
  5. Arrived just 5 minutes before the group!
  6. 9 of us in total.
  7. There had been a couple of punctures due to wet weather washing up the little countryside stones.
  8. Really enjoyed the chilli con carne with warm garlic bread and a crisp side salad.
  9. Just what I needed!
  10. My coffee came with a sweet little dome-shaped biscuit thing.

Essex Hills 2* Ride (24th January 2016)

This was the first Central London CTC Ride led by Mick O’Rourke. We’d met a few times before so I was looking forwards to what he had in store for us.
