- Saffron Walden – help needed.
I’m in Saffron Walden visiting the in laws on the weekend of 1st December and want to do a road ride on the Saturday morning. Are there any riders willing to show me around the Essex countryside? If not then can you point me in the direction of a decent road club I could join for a ride?
Thanks in advance. 🙂Posted 5 years ago
Kryton57, yours was the kind of reply I was hoping for. I was looking at around 40 to 50 miles at a nice gentle pace but I’m happy to ride at a pace and distance that suits. I just want to get out and ride. 🙂
I’m travelling up on the Friday night and can travel to a place that suits on Saturday.Posted 5 years ago
Suits me MM, especially the gentle pace bit.
Now, SW is mid-ride for me. Do you know the McDonald’s at the Harlow M11 Junction? If you could ride / drive their that’d be good although I don’t think you could park for that long, so the alternative (if you want to drive) is to meet me at High Beech in Epping Forest where you can park all day (plus there’s the tea hut for post ride tea and cake).
Are you happy to ride early-ish – approx 9am? Whats the priority – scenery or riding? The default route I’d use has a few main roads & 2 small towns – say 10 miles of that and 30+ Essex country – this has the best bank for buck with 3 x Cat 4’s included? There is another flatter route into the wilds of Essex but thats closer to 80k and at gentle pace you’ll have forced me into grovel-mode with the wife.
Your call (not sure how well you know the area).Posted 5 years ago
Whoops. I’v just realised I’ve mistaken Saffron Waldron is not where I was thinking – I’m further South than I thought with a fair bit of driving (30 mins?) down the M11 for you.
High Beach is here
Let me know if thats an issue.Posted 5 years ago
