It goes without saying that we regard The Pheasant as our home from home, the mothership to which we return after a hard day’s pedalling. There’s always a warm welcome from Simon and Ollie who tactfully turn a blind eye to our mud spattered entrance at lunchtime.
This Thursday was no exception as John T, John B, Rick, Keith, Ken, Andrew and Brian returned to Great Chishill having clocked up 32 miles, holding up the traffic in Nuthampstead, Anstey, Furneaux Pelham, Manuden, Rickling, Arkesden, Duddenhoe End and all points in between. The final climb up the hill to the Pheasant was as demanding as ever but there were no dismounts and the beer tasted all the better for our efforts.
