Mid week ride 13th February

From Bob D.

Eight riders left Orsett at 10am today ,this soon became nine as Dave R caught us,passed and then led from the front.As usual these days I gradually dropped back but was helped along as far as Corbetts Tey by Peter C where I needed to take the Sunnings lane shortcut to take a bit of a rest,this left Peter to complete the rest of the longer loop on his own as far as the cafe stop.Arriving at the Puddle was pleased to be joined by Bert H out again after his accident a few weeks ago ,this made a nice round total of ten for the day. Just had time to order and sit down when the others began to arrive having ridden at least five miles further. Returning after lunch in glorious weather for time of year those of us going back to Orsett stayed together for a while until a couple of the sprinters broke away leaving the rest of us to be nursed along by Chis M in that cleverly paced way of his ending outside the Whitmore for farewells for another week.
