Club gravel ride was a successful morning out, the weather was good and the ground was dry and dusty for the first time in weeks. I was pleased to see some interest from other members of the club.

which meant there were six of us, an easy number to organise. I was also pleased that there was a mix of abilities in the group as this is a social ride open to all.

As for the ride itself, we headed out of St Neots and quickly found the roman road to sandy. (No that was not the A1). We used some tame single tracks over to Potton enjoying a quiet run-down hassle hedge, through some woodland sections and some open bridleway across farmland. From there we did have to nip through Biggleswade, I think some of the group was unaware you can get out and under the A1 using the large drains. Then picked up some gravel bridle ways looping around Broom back up towards Old Warden on some bumpier grass tracks we were pleased had eventually dried out. We headed over the hill to Willington and picked up a gravel track into Colesden (to see the Alpacas and Donkeys); unfortunately, the byway and bridle were become a little scarce so we had to head home on the road but that happens.
