18 Nov: Thursday ride to St Neots

Edward writes: Greta, Averill, Sue, Eddie, Jim, Mike, Geoff, Peter, Bill and Tony met at Haslingfield Church for our ride to St. Neots. This was a good turnout and made up for the disappointment of last week's cancellation.

We headed out to Harlton, through the Eversdens, Kingston and through Bourn. Here we were joined by Rupert. He claims he had a puncture for his late arrival, or did he just oversleep?

Greta set a cracking pace taking us over the A428 through Knapwell and into Elsworth where we stopped for coffee at the George and Dragon. The Thursday group discovered this pub a few weeks ago and very good it is too, and certainly beats the nearby bus shelter.

After our break we were joined by Doug, waiting at the bus shelter, and pressed on, briefly taking the B1040 before turning left at Hilton and going through Graveley before taking the main road into St Neots.

This was a good ride out to St Neots with particularly good weather, clocking up 25 miles.

We lunched at Ambience, the cafe in the park just over the river and were joined by Brian (from Mid-Beds) and Tony.

Afterwards we rode through the park and headed to Abbotsley, going through the Gransdens before retracing this morning's route back to Haslingfield.

At Little Eversden we were rejoined by Bill who apparently called at Waresley for coffee, and we thought he had gone home! Edward Elmer
