24 Oct: Evening ride to Fen Ditton

Nigel writes: Now that these evening rides are entirely in the dark, the numbers on these rides has fallen, and after next week's ride they become monthly. Today at Brookside there was only me and John E, though Tony had offered to meet us half-way-round in Dullingham.

The route today was a familar one: down to Addenbrooke's, over the Gogs to Fulbourn, through the Wilbrahams to Six Mile Bottom, up the hill to the woodland cemetery crossroads, and north to Dullingham. I reached Dullingham at 7.45pm to find Tony waiting in the dark. We rode on together to Swaffham Bulbeck and then via Bottisham and Quy to Fen Ditton, where we stopped for a pint and a burger at The Plough. After a short time we were joined by John, from whom I had separated earlier on the ride.

Afterwards we all returned home: for me this involved a short ride across the commons to Riverside. I arrived home at about 10pm, having cycled about 31 miles.
