Saturday 22nd December


As the last Saturday special was cancelled due to the weather it is now running this weekend.  The original route suggested Bicicletta in Saffron Walden but I wonder if we should change it as all getting coffee at 10am Saturday before Christmas will be difficult.  On that basis I suggest we head to a non-Christmas(y) café.

​So a couple of options;
Blue Egg which is lovely ride and Café but a bit lumpy, also the weather is suggesting it will be 15mph headwind on the way back.

The other option is possibly Shuttleworth large café and flatter and where we will get the tail wind home.

​Finally, maybe 8:30 Mica start as almost shortest day so those riding in will be on lights.

Thoughts on route (or very happy with other suggestions) and who is coming so we can wait ?

Thanks Simon, I'll be out.

Agree re the 8.30 start time and not competing with Christmas shoppers in Bicicletta. Always up for a ride to the Blue Egg but perhaps review the options on the day. (Jordans Mill might be the other destination to consider if we want a tailwind on the return leg)

I am allowed out to play on Sat, as there is no football. I am up for Schuttleworth or Jordan’s, both sound good. Agree about the 8:30 start.

Re: Saturday 22nd December

I am out Saturday and happy to do whichever ride is chosen, although would be nice to go to Jordans mill as not been there yet, but either of the 3 is fine with me.

Re: Saturday 22nd December

I hope to be out as long as weather is kind-ish, like the sound of Jordan’s Mill as well👍

Re: Saturday 22nd December

If we do ride to Jordan's Mill here is the route -
(Just in case anyone has already downloaded the ride from the Route Bank I've changed it slightly to avoid Northfield Road which can be very mucky at this time of year.)

Re: Saturday 22nd December

I’m happy to do any route - I’ve not done a Sat Spec before. Or been to any of those cafes.

Re: Saturday 22nd December

I'll be out on Saturday. Richard's route & Jordan's is fine with me.

Re: Saturday 22nd December

I’m hoping to get out, and meet you in Bassingbourn /Kneesworth

Re: Saturday 22nd December

Looks like Jordans Mill so I will meet up at Basingbourn Kneesworth.  Any Melboun lot can meet 8:20 co-op?

Re: Saturday 22nd December

Hi Simon, I guess you’ll be passing the top of my road? If so I’ll wait for you there.

Re: Saturday 22nd December

So just to confirm it's an 8.30 start from Mica. If you're joining en route and haven't posted already do let us know to look out for you.
