Intermediate riders take the rough with the smooth
Sunday 13th September saw a large group of riders in the Intermediate Clubrun group which was heading for Finchingfield. As ride leader I decided to get a bit roughy-tufty with the group - some sections of rough stuff or off-road were planned into the route.
Actually the amount of off-road was quite small and not too rough at all and so it was not too much of a problem to those with road bikes. The excursions did make a talking point - and no complaints. However a faster splinter group did form just after the first off-road section so mabe they voted with their pedals! I thought it was quite fun but not as much fun as the smooth!
In Finchingfield we headed for the (relatively) newly opened Finchingfield Tea Rooms. Now, everybody knows I have a liking for cake and I chose a chocolate cake, see visual description opposite. Anyway the smooth came in the form of excellent butter icing. Delicious. I can heartily recommend the Finchingfield Tea Rooms for both the food and friendly service.
