Sunday 20th January ride: Winter Wandering to Bricket Wood

We do now have a plan – a cunning plan. Malcolm will lead the group to The Gate pub at Bricket Wood for lunch (no coffee stop in the morning). There will be a stop on the way back for afternoon tea at The Orchard  café at Shenley. The route will involve a little off-road but it shouldn’t be too muddy. It might be a bit nippy so do bring warm clothing – and remember your lights for getting home.
