    Excellent ride out - can't wait for the next one, good to meet Richard and Graham, well done on organising it Andrea. Good choice of route with the extra loop from Richard

    Now that I've read about the great ride that you all had, I'm even more disappointed that my bike battery was flat. Thanks to Graham for letting me use his 12v Booster, but the bike still didn't start :-(

    Hopefully I will get the battery sorted out in time for the next ride.

    Poxy bike wont start! Checked it yesterday all ok. Only 18 months old as well! I can feel a trade in coming!

      We did 41 miles as I clocked my odometer :) It was a good first run. I'll send over some route ideas in the week, but if anyone has suggestions post them up. Cheers Richard

      Would love it if the meet point was nearer Hemel Hempstead way but there is only me and Lisa this way so understand hp12aj

    Hi Guys, still hoping to make the meet but was knocked off my work bike 4 weeks ago when a car ran into the back of me and then drove off!!! Sprained ankle and tore ligaments which is still painful and therefore not using either bike unless I really have to. If I'm not there have a great ride. :)

      I had the same thing happen to me last year, it took over 6 months before I recovered as I had a lower back injury. Hoping you have a speedy recover and hope to meet up soon on a ride.

    I think that if it's heavy rain or snowing then we are likely to call the ride off. In that case we could meet for coffee at the Silver Ball Cafe or Costa at Baldock Tesco...? Also Richard suggested that if at Silver Ball we decide to go further, we can go straight through Royston and instead of turning left to head to Baldock we can continue straight towards Wimpole, then head left to Dunston and then to Biggleswade and then on the A1 back home. I'll need to turn off at Baldock services because of my Ls :-) just another option for the day.

    We thought that as it's our first ride we could go to Buntingford through Cottered on the A507, stop for a tea or breakfast at the Silver Ball Cafe on the A10, go to Royston and back on the A505. About 30 miles. What do you think?

      That sounds great - Buntingford road is nice road to ride and it will be a chance for people to get to know one another at the Silver Ball cafe.

      January 27

    • Graham K.

      Sounds good. The A507 is a great road, haven't done it on the bike yet. Hope the weather is good!

  • John W.

    I hope to attend (with pillion) :-)

  • ben k.

    Can you give me the post code of the meeting place please? How long from Hemel Hempstead is it? Also we going out regardless the weather or will that be called the day before?? There is a horrible rumour of snow coming??

    • Richard M.

      hi Ben the postcode for Baldock Tesco's is SG7 6BN.

      January 27

  • Rod K.

    See you all there! Any ideas on a route yet? The A507 to Buntingford is great on a bike as are all the small roads around that area.

  • ben k.
