Old Warden (Shuttleworth Café) - Bedfordshire

Thursday 20th July

This morning our ride was to the Shuttleworth Areodrome Café, near Old Warden. Four of us set off from Letchworth Sandra and David W, myself and Frank C in the lead. We headed for Arlesey via Bedford Rd and the New Road and on to Henlow where Sandra and David decided to leave us and have a break, due to the strongish headwinds. Frank and I continued, meeting Bedford Paul at the Stanford crossroads. From there we all 
headed off via Ireland and then over to Old Warden for our Shuttleworth lunch. We joined John, Bridget and Gill who were already there. The usual reasonable value canteen style food was had by all. Try the Cornish Pasty and Chips - lovely. Anyway, after lunch John and Paul went their own ways as did Bridget and Gill. Frank had received a text from Sandra and David saying that they were in the Cock at Broom, so Frank and I headed over there to meet with them. After another coffee we all headed back to Letchworth via Langford, Henlow, Arlesey and through Fairfield. The weather today was not the best with some showers and quite strong winds. My mileage was 28 with an average of 12.
