08 May: Hatfield to Langley

Nine keen members turned up at the start at Hatfield, as what can only be described as the first summer’s day this year! We took a longer but flatter route to Much Hadham Golf Course through scenic shaded lanes.

After a tasty well-cooked bacon sarnie, some sensible people applied sun cream before leaving, I wasn't one of them! Temperatures rising, we meandered 12 miles to The Bull Pub in Lower Langley Green for lunch, where we met the Cambridge CTC, also watering at this welcoming pub.

We then headed out to Little Chishall, Barkway and Sandon to Rushden Garden Centre Tea Rooms.

I believe we managed to cycle through 3 beautiful counties: Hertfordshire, Essex and Cambridgeshire, all looking at their best in glorious weather, by my reckoning 68 miles. Perfect conditions and company! That’s what cycling is all about for me.
