7 Dec: Afternoon ride to Hauxton

Today was a perfect winter's day; cold but not too cold, and with bright sunshine all day. There were seven people on the afternoon ride. Jim took us south via the Shelfords, Whittlesford, Duxford and Ickleton. Then we continued south over Coploe Hill before turning west towards Chrishall Grange. Then back via Fowlmere and Newton to a typically splendid and convivial tea with John and Greta in Hauxton. There were about seventeen people at tea.

Despite the day-long sunshine, patches of ice remained on a few minor roads in shaded areas, and two of us slipped over. Fortunately this occurred at very low speed and so I don't think anyone was hurt or anything damaged. Total mileage: 32 miles:
