A beautiful day, 19 riders, in two groups, enjoyed a gentle ride from Temple Barns in Cressing west to The Black Lion at High Roding. A generally easy route with a few gentle slopes took us via White Notley, Ranks Green, Littley Green, Pleshey and High Easter. Lunch was delicious but it was a long time arriving and we left for a dash to Rayne for a cuppa before they closed at 4.00pm, arriving with 5 minutes to spare. Great to see the number of riders increasing.
