Sunday 3rd December 2006

Those who woken by the wind and rain had thought better of it missed a fine autumnal day. Only four came (Ed, Graham, Irene, Jake) and they came alone to 11's. Most had tales of fallen branches to which I could add a long flooded section of Plough Lane Cobham. All had started in rain but soon blue skies and gusty winds were the order of the day. Ed had decided to shorten the ride so we headed through Ripley, left at the Seven Stars and through Old Woking to Mayford. The BYOs were in the majority so lunch was taken initially on a log in Mayford Meadows. Before long I espied Pete and Lisa in the distance and a text message from Jake lured them to our hideaway. The nearby garden centre provided soup, tea and cakes; this turned out to be a wise choice as the sign outside the Mayford Arms read 'No Food Today'. Ed now led us on a tour, neither magical nor mystery, past Woking's football ground and town centre and onto the A320 (N, as the Yanks would say). Fortuitously this has a cycle path with obligatory fallen birch. Finding myself at the front, I suggested Brox Road. With no dissenters, we were soon at a tea stop in Tesco’s Addlestone (yet again).
