Saturday Social Ride

Tina and I joined Mark Woolven’s Saturday social ride last week. I think there were about 8 or 9 of us on the ride, which started from Orsett at 10.00. I believe the idea is to get riders who are not confident or experienced at riding in a group, to do just that. We rode at a steady pace of 14 or 15 MPH via Bulpham, past Puddledock Farm, Berwick Ponds, Stubbers and back down Fen Lane. No one was dropped and there were the occasional shouts of “slow down” to keep the group together when going up the “hills”. It was a really enjoyable ride and Tina said that it was a great confidence booster. So if there are any new riders out there, come along and give it a try. Thanks again to Mark, Richard Mandy and Clint Sanderson for being ride leaders.
