On Sunday 7th April the sun shone through the fog and frost and we had a decent, if chilly day. 5 Tandems and 2 solos rolled out from our meeting place at Marks Tey Station. 

Making steady progress and enjoying the sun as we rolled up and down the country lanes to Boxted, where we enjoyed the usual kind of elevense but at Sandra's sisters house, Jacqui gave us a really warm welcome and mide us warm as well.

Dragging ourselves back out into the sunny, chilly air we rolled off again. We took in more of the rolling countryside (whoever said that Essex and Suffolk was flat?) and it was a great delight to see the daffodils and wild primroses along with spring lambs. We stopped for a breather at the Polstead duck pond, a favourite spot for several of us, and Alan and Wendy showed us THEIR picnic bench. We made our way uphill again from here towards Boxted and on into Assington where we stopped for a welcome lunch in the Barn Tea Rooms. Gill gave us here after lunch sales pitch for Optilab glasses and I'm sure she in now looking forward to receiving her commission!

Refreshed we then made our way through the undulating countryside through Bures pas Chappel Station and the Viaduct and into Marks Tey.

Right at the end Dave found he had a puncture oh dear! If there is ever a good time..... that was it, with his car in sight.

All said they enjoyed the ride and if Paul could find a few more hills.....

Everyone is looking forward to next months ride and with a little more sunshine we may get to see more legs as only Paul and David were brave enough to wear the shorts today.
