Copford Ride Report

December 29, 2013

This being the last ride of the year saw ten riders turning up at Colchester Leisure World. The ride to elevenses was to the Dutch Nursery at Coggeshall. We are always made very welcome there, and it’s rarely too busy to get served fairly quickly.

Four left us after elevens to return to Colchester. We wished them Happy New Year then six of us set off for The Alma at Copford. I had phoned The Alma in advance saying we’d arrive about 1–15 pm. I set off leading the ride putting in various ‘loops’ to make right the time and mileage. There were a few twists and turns to keep the riders guessing.

All in all a good ride and lunch was had by all. This being the 24th ride that I lead in 2013. I now look forward to a new year where there are new ride volunteers.
