Our first outing

Brian's advert in the Village News did the trick, four Great Shelford stalwarts turning out for the club's inaugural ride on a chilly Monday morning in March.

Setting off at 09:30 from Cara Coffee in Great Shelford, Jenny, Hilary, Lewis and Brian clocked up 22 miles visiting Newton, Fowlmere, Shepreth, Orwell, Barrington and Haslingfield.

We stopped for a photo astride the meridian at Orwell and, having laboured up Chapel Hill, it seemed only right to pull in for refreshment at The Moringa Tree, a delightful little café opposite the church in Haslingfield. It was here that we bumped into Iain and Biddy, who were on a similar ride but going in the opposite direction.

Returning to Great Shelford, there was general agreement that the club had a future and we should meet again for a similar outing next Monday.
