31 Aug: Afternoon ride to Litlington

Six people, including myself, turned up at Brookside, Cambridge at 2.15pm for this afternoon's ride.

The weather for the outward ride was warm and dry though it was overcast and threatened to rain at times. As usual, I had planned a route of about 30 miles. However we completed it more quickly than I had expected and so arrived at The Crown PH in Litlington about 20 minutes early for our pre-booked tea.

The all-day ride turned up in force about 15 minutes late, but fortunately there was plenty of food despite there being a total of 15 or 16 at tea in total. On the ride home it started to rain though it was never very heavy and eased off after a while.

It was good to see Shaun for the first time in several months; to celebrate
the occasion he had a puncture on the way home on Canteloupe Road, Haslingfield.
