Re: Saturday 30th July

I’m out, Grafham was suggested, depending on whether the cafe is open or not.

Yes, def interested. If can’t get decent cafe at grafham la hogue was nice ride & cafe.

Re: Saturday 30th July

I’ll try Grafham cafe again later, otherwise La Hogue or Debden look options

Re: Saturday 30th July

I said to Adrian I’d join him on a ride to Tom’s Cakes. But if he wants to change plans I don’t mind.

Re: Saturday 30th July

I might be out with Adrian too, I don't want to be too slow for the main group on the S.S. as only done two CIRCA 28 mile rides last week.

My descision formulae -
Distance (D) + Speed (S) - Capability/Ability (CpA) ± Fear of slowing the group down (Fn) = Wimping out big time (WOBT) :-(

Re: Saturday 30th July

I went to the cafe at Grafham a few weeks ago.  It was open, at least on a Friday.  However, I am not sure that the cake selection is particularly good, but they did have ice cream! I've not been to La Hogue before.  How complicated would it be to coordinate on a meet up at Tom's cakes (still not been there either) with the other ride.

Re: Saturday 30th July

Not a fan of Tom's cakes for a group it's basically on a main road with virtually no seating :-(

Pencil me in. I’ll confirm tomorrow.

Re: Saturday 30th July

I'm with Simon re Tom's. Great cakes but on a busy corner and not enough space if we're going to be a larger group.

I'm fine with either Grafham (suggested route's here- -  or La Hogue (suggested route's here -
If the cafes at Grafham aren't open Colmworth golf course would be the back-up.

Re: Saturday 30th July

Happy with either but not been out la hogue way for a while, just different roads.

Re: Saturday 30th July

Sounds like La Hogue then - the first one to express a preference usually carries it, though slightly against the wind.

it is 8:00 from the Heath, picking up Melbourn en route?

I'll probably take a shorter route back from Saffron W.

Re: Saturday 30th July

I'll be in Melbourn.

Re: Saturday 30th July

Yes, I'll be starting from the Heath car park at 8am and we can pick-up others in Melbourn.

(For anyone wanting something shorter,  is the ride to Tom's Cakes still on?)
