Littley Green Ride Report on 06/12/2015

Mel M joined us at the start in Wickford but only stayed with us for a short time, as he was defecting to the Chelmsford City Member Group who were en route to Ingatestone Garden Centre (little did he know, but more about that later). Anyway, eight minus Mel made it to the Recess Coffee Shop in Chelmsford (a new elevenses venue for us) and Jon C went for a large coffee at £2.25 which was so large you could float a duck in it!

Four headed out via Chelmsford Central Park where we came across hundreds of Santa Clauses running for charity and, having got through safely, we were soon on our way to 'huffer-heaven' at The Compasses in Littley Green. The route through the Chignals saw 'Rocket Ron' flying faster than a speeding bullet up the hills. At the pub, Jon C having already had a large coffee decided to eat a whole huffer, Ron S joined him, but Jim C and Ian M shared one. Just as we were tucking in who should appear but Mel, who finding no one in Ingatestone decided to come and join us. Having stuffed ourselves we decided against stopping for afternoon tea and made our respective ways home, where I had 73.4 miles on reaching Shoeburyness.
