Southill - Bedfordshire

Thursday 20th April 

Nine of us left Wetherspoons headed this morning headed for Southill, David R, Geoff, Frank C, Peter, Jeremy, Anne, myself, Sandra with David W leading. I would like to welcome Jeremy a new member and it was good to have Anne back out cycling again. We cycled via Norton, Stotfold, Arlesey, Henlow, Clifton, Stanford arriving at the White Horse Southill for lunch just before midday. We were met there by John and Bedford Paul. David decided not to stop for lunch and continued on his way, no doubt to double his mileage. The rest of us had an enjoyable lunch before heading back. John and Bedford Paul both made their own way as usual while the rest of us used the same route as the outward journey with Frank C leading. The only exception being that at Stotfold traffic lights we turned right heading past Fairfield. The weather was generally overcast with a threat of rain, in fact, after lunch, it started to rain but fortunately, it didn't come to much. A nice easy ride for me today with my mileage being 21.5 at an average of 10.5. Geoff and Peter would have done considerably more as they cycled from Luton.
