The start at Brookside, Cambridge
We reached Potton without going through Gamlingay village. This was a very pleasant route with little traffic. We arrived at the Coach House shortly after the regulation time of 3pm. A few late lunchers were still in the pub where we joined by Mike S. The mean GPS readings from the group registered 24.5 miles.
After tea, coffee, cakes and roast potatoes (the latter supplied gratis by mine host) we set off on a delightful route through Wrestingworth to Guilden Morden where I was back on familiar territory as we rode through Shingay, Croydon, Wimpole, Orwell and Barrington. Here a scud of rain persuaded me to stop and put on a waterproof, though this proved unnecessary.

I followed the group over Chapel Hill into Haslingfield where the group dispersed to their various homes. I reached home at 6.10pm after an excellent ride of just under 50 miles. Congratulations and thanks to Sue for leading us on an interesting and incident-free route. John Ferguson
