Gateway Cycling » Club News » SUNDAY 6TH FIRST 2019 CLUB RIDE


From Jon Lane

A good number of riders turned out at Bulphan this morning for the first proper Sunday ride 2019 – at least 16 or more, I didn’t count … A bit overcast but no ice, wind or rain to bother us. One group headed for Blackmore via a different route but our Rec’ group of four, Bob D, Lee H, led by Dave F we headed via a circuitous route towards Rainham. Taking in the ‘hard paths’ (no cars) … along the Ingrebourne Valley this was ideal, a nice steady manageable pace taking in the parkland winter scene. We stopped at the ‘Delight Cafe’ in Rainham village, excellent value here, Bob said it’s as cheap as Corbett’s Tey Crem’… to be recommended.
Onward over the railway line, across the marsh to the riverside and via Purfleet homeward… A good start to the year to get fit… I hope all your other rides today were fun with no mishaps…

Cheers! Jon.

PS. Club night Friday 11th – bring your £20 membership because as Secretary Dave R said we need to nail high Club membership numbers with British Cycling…
