Saturday Ride Short and long.

Saturday, 7th October 2017 at 8:30am - 3pm

Location: Mcdonalds Leytonstone

This event is in the past.

Maybe Flatford Suffolk 65 miles ish (constable country) a national trust place.

Great destination, then train home.
Short ride who ever needs to get back early .
All leave same time and cut off maybe after Moreton?

Managed to trip up the stairs yesterday and tweak something in my right knee. Nothing serious, but riding home last night was a (literal) pain. So I'm going to be sensible and rest it today.
Enjoy the ride, and see you all next week!

Looks like the wind is blowing from the west, so perhaps aim for somewhere north / north west? Much Hadham / Hertford sort of direction?

Off the Anglia rail site::
Planned engineering work will take place between Witham and Marks Tey from 03:00, Saturday 07 October 2017 to 02:00, Monday 09 October 2017.
All services will be replaced by buses between Witham and Marks Tey. As a result of Track Renewal work, all lines are closed between Witham and Marks Tey, all day. Rail replacement will operate between Marks Tey and Witham for local services and a direct bus service will operate between Colchester and Witham for non local passengers bound in/ out of London. A revised train service will operate between Liverpool Street and Witham in both directions. Also, as a result of Overhead Line Renewal work, all lines will be closed between Shenfield and Wickford all day. Rail replacement will operate between Shenfield and Wickford all weekend.

I'd prefer to reschedule the trip to Flatford for another time.

East Anglia trains are slow this weekend with plenty of changes.

I shall go to Brett's Farm as I want to keep under 50 miles for my first long ride out in a month! Happy to lead a small band of merry cyclists for coffee and cake there and back again.

Dummow was good last week.

Rail works will prevent us being able to get the train home if we ride to Flatford.
I suggest instead a ride to Blue Egg cafe, (84 miles round trip). Shorter rides along the route for those wanted to return earlier are: Brett's Farm (46 miles) and Great Dunmow (66 miles). I can post a route map if it helps.

Would like to surprise my friends in Ipswich by turning up on my bike. Should have done so in August.
