RCC Saturday Special - Sat 21st December

The festive RCC "Tinsel" Saturday special is to Grantchester Meadows, which gives us the opportunity to offer a long, medium and short route, to cater for all abilities and speeds.

If we plan to meet at Mica at 8.30 am. Weather at present is looking murky but dry, and around 6c, with a moderate southerly.

Longer route is just short of 60 miles, with cafe stop at around 35 miles https://www.strava.com/routes/18884734

Medium route is about 40 miles, with cafe stop at around 15 miles, but you can reverse this route and make it around 25 miles https://www.strava.com/routes/7567085  (actually M7 from the route bank)

Shorter route is about  30 miles, with cafe stop at midway point [url=https://www.strava.com/routes/7567552]https://www.strava.com/routes/7567552
(actually S14 from Route bank)[/url]

If you could post on forum your interest in coming, and which group you would prefer to join, then we can have an idea of the numbers and the groups that will be out. 

Merry Xmas everyone!

Thank you for doing all this Barry - good call. I'll be doing the Short at MR pace, but also happy to do the Medium depending upon who is around. Looks like coffee is at Burwash Manor.

I'm planning to come, not sure which distance because I'm recovering from a cold.  Will see how I feel.

Re: RCC Saturday Special - Sat 21st December

Hello....Not attending the ride tomorrow but I wanted to make you aware that there is a lot of localised flooding around South Cambs, East Herts. The ford at Much Hadham is under 5 foot of water with vehicles stuck in it. There are floods at Toft with the road closed and there is flooding on the A1198 where the water is running off the hill. A lot of the water is running off the fields as drainage and ditches are saturated. This has lead to a lot of debris on the roads, majority of which is hidden by flood water. 
Be safe out there guys...See you Sunday

Re: RCC Saturday Special - Sat 21st December

Thanks for the info Rob. I was thinking there would be flooding given the amount of rain we've had. There's more due overnight. I'll reassess in the morning.
