Ten cyclists met at the Broadway Fountain this morning for our ride to Kimpton. This ride was also in support of the Garden City Wheelers, although there were no takers outside of the 40+ membership. We set off in two groups, the first consisting of John D, Kevin, Andy, Geoff H, Mia with Alan leading. They cycled via Great Wymondley where Nige joined them, Preston, Ley Green and Breachwood Green. Our group consisted of Geoff P, Steve, John H, and myself taking the lead. Our route was via Whitwell and Codicote. Both groups arrived at the Boot at the same time, just before midday, where we were joined by Bedford Paul and Mick. Unfortunately, Mick had a rear-wheel puncture as he arrived at The Boot, which he was able to fix in the relative comfort of the pub garden. Lunch was enjoyable socially and served up efficiently at a reasonable price. Afterwards, we set off in the same groups with Paul and Mick going their own way. Alan’s group cycled back via Codicote, Old Knebworth, Stevenage, Graveley and Great Wymondly. While we, led by Geoff this time came directly back along the farm track to Whitwell and then the usual route back to Letchworth. Stuart Collins.
