Thursday morning saw eleven Windmillers gathering in the car park of The Golden Fleece in Braughing. Maurice had planned a 32 mile ride around the lanes of North Herts and he was to be accompanied by Keith, John B, John T, Andrew, Martin, Lawrence, Sandra, Tom and two Brians.
Setting off we headed for Much Hadham and then on to Hunsdon and Stanstead Abbotts where we turned northwards on to the River Lee towpath.
We stopped to admire the bird life – mostly cormorants – at Amwell Nature Reserve before continuing on to Ware where we pulled in for refreshments at The Corner Coffee Shop.
Then it was back on the bikes for the return leg to Braughing.
Arriving at the Fleece we were delighted to be joined for lunch by Vernon. He let slip that it’s his birthday next week, guaranteeing another bumper turnout.
Thanks, Maurice and Andrew, for organising another delightful ride.
