24 Apr: Sunday afternoon ride to Ashdon

This is our 1001st ride report!

John F writes: Eight cyclists met at Brookside at 1pm, including a guest CTC member from the Cotswolds, Bob M. The weather was perfect with a slight southerly breeze. The early start time allowed us a longish ride to tea and we set off eastwards through Fen Ditton, Quy to Dullingham. There we turned south until the crossroads from there we went through West Wickham, Horseheath. Cardinal’s Green, Shudy Camps to Ashdon.

From Bottisham the route was along delightfully traffic-free lanes. Arriving at the museum at 3.40pm we met Mike S, Simon (back on his bike after a lay-off with knee problems) and Steve. A scrumptious tea was, as usual , enjoyed al fresco. Stan's GPS had recorded a distance of 25 miles.

The return route via Red Oaks Hill and the quiet lane to Seward's End into Saffron Walden, past Audley End House. over Coploe HiIl and on via Hinxton brought us into Cambridge at 6.15pm. Stan and his GPS were not with us on the return route but my guess for the total distance is 47 miles. John Ferguson
