Mid week Ride Today – 11th July 2018

Ten riders set off from Orsett today to ride the Berwich Ponds loop with Puddledock the designated lunch stop where we were to be met by Chris G who is not riding at the moment thus making eleven in total. It was soon apparent that some people were in a hurry and set off at a furious pace which three of us were either unwilling or unable or both able to maintain. Chris M in his usual generous way offered to pull me back to the bunch but I didn’t want to hold him up so dropped back to to ride with Bert H and Taff P. Taff as his name suggests is a resident of S. Wales who’s work brings him often to Thurrock and he has joined Gateway to ride fairly regularly with us, he is a very big man and is not yet quite up to speed and usually ends up riding the whole loop on his own but he is improving all the time and is to be congratulated for his efforts and happy disposition and sociability.With the main bunch out of sight Bert and myself rode as fast as we could and arrived at the cafe some minutes after the others with Taff a few minutes later still. Usual chat and then split up for different routes home and so ends another great day out on the local lanes and everybody happy.Bob D.
