Last Forum Day 8

From Bob D.

Just in from my longest and most adventurous ride for some considerable time.Fifty two miles solo,yep thats Epic for me.Out via Orsett ,Dunton,Little Burstead ( climb),first stop Burstead Tea rooms for coffee and cake.On through Billericay, Hutton to Mountnessing where plan was for brunch at Francseca’s but closed for refurbishment.Not all bad news as butchers next door do award winning pasties so put one in pocket for later.On again through Wyatts Green to Doddinghurst where had pastie and drink from bottle on the Green in the sunshine.Off again and up Shenfield Hall lane ( climb ) Worrin Road (shallow climb ) on to Brentwood and down through Warley to Cranham round Berwich loop where next planned stop was Berwich Tea rooms unfortunately sods law closed indefinately.On wards towards home at 42 miles decided to stop for celebratory pint at the White Horse N Ockendon, Would have had two but at £4-30 a pop decided against.Last 10 miles home mostly flat and down hill so made it comfortably.Well over a 100 miles already this week so will probably hibernate for a few days Bob D.
