Default Sunday 20th August

Well, seeing as Cronos beat us to the first post in here, I thought I would be first with the first rideout post! :P

The weather isnt looking too bad for Sunday so whos up for a rideout ending up with a meet at the Quayside? Based on preferences from before, it seemed an earlier afternoon would suit more people.

I will let the proper locals think of a suitable route as I am not au fait with Cambridgeshire roads... (yes Simon that probably means you! )

So come on then, stand up and be counted!

I'm likely to be working again throughout this weekend, but on the off chance I can spare a couple of hours (unlikely, but more in mind of future events) can you post up a link to where this place is for me. Ta.

OK, OK.............

Newmarket to Stradishall to Clare on the B1063.

Clare to Baythorn End on the A1092

then via Haverhill on the A1017/A1307 to Linton and Cambridge

starts off quite twisty and hilly - yes there are some hills in the Fens (cue the 'sure they are not speed humps' quips) through the country and opens up to some fast sweeping A road / dual carriageway. Some roundabout stuff for the knee down enthusiasts (I can't!) and a short hop to the Quayside.

Can someone suggest a better bar/final destination? The quayside may be picturesque by the river but the service is appalling and the drinks v.expensive IMO.
How about somewhere totally different like the Unicorn Pub in Trumpington? The Bridge Hotel nr Waterbeach?

oh, and what sort of time?
If we do this route I thought a good meeting point might be The World Famous Comfort Cafe and a quick dive over to the 'start'?
Should take about an hour and a half.

Would also suggest that coffee/non-alcoholic drinks might be best.

Don't worry just airsofting, but would have liked to have made it, will make the next one.

Skip, how's the Z750s going? just realised you have changed bike. Any good?

Cheers

How about early afternoon? Say 1:30-2:00 time? Not really fussed either way but it would be nice if it was all in daylight... Are we going to meet at Barton Mills again Simon?

Sounds good, been wondering about what bike to get next, was thinking of a SV1000S or the Z750S (much later down the line).

By the way, the weekend forcast is a mixture of sun and rain, more note given to the rain and perhaps thunder storms. Just thought I would warn you all.

Cheers

Rich
