Polstead Ride Report

February 8, 2015

Eleven riders met up at the container for the ride on a day a bit less cold and windy than of late. Because the distances both to lunch and elevenses were short it necessitated putting in a few loops or so to make the mileage and time factor right.

The run to elevenses would take us skirting Wivenhoe, Elmstead Market, and round part of the Ardleigh Reservoir to Dedham. The ride to lunch would take us into the valleys of the Brett and Box. The leader Alan circumvented the water tower at Raydon at least once, and quite delibertately also put in two or three loops to keep riders guessing!

The Cock Inn in Polstead served us very well for lunch. All in all a good ride was had by all.
