10 of us set out on a chilly  ride …Brrr it was cold, you would not have thought it was Spring. 
We headed out through Walkern, on to Cottered and down through the fast stretch of Throcking, where boys will be boys and Chris and John decided to race !!!!!
 


We cycled up through Wydial and then down into Hare Street, where we stopped at the March Hare for refreshments. 
 
The second half of the ride took us down into Puckeridge and we followed a new route up into  Great Munden
.

The climb of Whempstead Lane, Dane End never seems to get any easier :- (
 
A few of our group left us at the cross roads and the rest of us cycled towards Benington where we went off road into the BlueBell Woods. The Bluebells were stunning, a carpet of blue lay before us, we then made our final descent into Watton at Stone. We covered 30 miles in all.
 
I really enjoyed the ride, great company.

Thank you to all that rode with us.
