It was great to have our leader Maurice back with us today after his recent bug, but he was immediately given a stern hill at Little Chishill to climb by Deputy Dawg Andrew, now known also as Wee Willie Dawg (on account of his hat, just in case you were wondering – see below). Keith and Moley Martin were the others taking part on what proved to be a pleasant afternoon after the earlier gloom at noon. But it was still necessary to be back at the Pheasant by 4.00pm due to darkness descending but an enjoyable ride was had by all, taking in Clavering, Arkesden and Chrishall. We were then joined by John B and tucked into an excellent cheese board kindly provided by our hosts Simon and Ollie. Thanks to DD for organising the ride.
