That's a challenge is it? :D
Never trust anyone who, when left alone in a room with a tea cozy, does not try it on.

Thanks Mike and Chris for input and advice on the venue - the pub is really lovely, has great beer and food and has a lovely seating area out the front - the car park and drive is a little gravelly I think so some might find parking out the front a bit easier if like me you're not so good on uneven surfaces and gravel, but a puck may prove useful if the ground is a little on the soft side xx Travel safe everyone and see you at the March Meeting, love Evie x

Hi Evie,
If you're not so good on uneven surfaces, perhaps Oafski can lend you his zimmer frame. :o

I’m accompanying Mrs B to a funeral up in Norfick on the Saturday and we might stay up there overnight. So despite having gravel resistant side stands on my main rides and curled up toes in my slippers it is very likely that I will be unable to attend this one. But have fun y’all.

A very aged family friend, so not too tragic at least. And thanks.

I've found unnecessarily long routes there and back, see you Sunday Chris.

Getting high on the fumes of Leder Gris after deciding to smarten up my Alt Berg boots in honour of the occasion.

You will have a good following wind for the sail down but you might have to row the Viking longship on the way home :D

God’s Teeth !! The weather forecast is showing wind speeds of 17-18 mph, with gusts of up to 30 mph ! It’s going to be a long ride back to my corner of West Essex.

Another great Essex Branch meeting and despite the dire warnings we managed to park next to a puddle without getting pucked. Anxious to avoid the A12 in the wind and rain Richard j and I sought an alternative route back to our enclaves on the boundary of the Branch's catchment area and managed to navigate the maze of Maldon unmolested before finding more familiar territory. A brief stop in Ongar to change to a warmer pair of dry gloves then home to revel in the warmth of a nightstore radiator. Livin the dream! :D

Good to see everyone today! As it was proper hailing as we left I took the quickest route home via the A12, where on earth are all these people going on a Sunday afternoon?
