Saturday Special - 18th May - Grantchester Meadows

This months Saturday Special is looking to go to Granchester Meadows tea Room, which i think is the first time the club has made the trip here. Obviously this is only a short ride if done as the crow flys, but I have drawn up a short route for people wishing to come along but would rather do a slower pace than the usual 15mph target average.

I have put together a 30 mile route - https://www.strava.com/routes/18884482 - which is the same route there and back, and tearoom is only 15 miles into the ride.
OR
a more challenging 57 mile route - https://www.strava.com/routes/18884734 - with tearoom being 35 miles into the ride

If we aim to meet at Mica at 8.30am. 

Please let us know if you are thinking of joining us, and also which route you are thinking of doing, hopefully we can get a few takers for each route.

What time do you expect to hit the coffee shop? We are likely to do a separate ride as Matt needs to test the TT bike which can't safely be done in a group but we may join you for cake!

Dang! Would love to have done this but on taxi service for my daughter. I’m looking forward to joining you Sunday though. Enjoy

Georgie, it’s 35 miles to coffee stop, so at 15 mph ave should be 10.45ish I would guess?

Ok, Chishill makes sense.   Race you up the hill.
