First D Ride after 2nd Lockdown for One Bubble!

05/12/2020 20:02 | Anonymous member

Two riders Mike and Ray formed a bubble to ride from Harrietsham Church to Headcorn. The fields in Harrietsham were covered in snow from the snowstorm the day before, it was thawing nicely and the roads were okay to cycle. Near Staplehurst a large area was flooded, luckily only one section of road was totally covered with flood water, we did however manage to cycled through it. All the shops were open at Headcorn following the lockdown and most of the cafes were selling take a-way snacks, we were spoilt for choice.  Finding the shortest queue we purchased our hot drinks. The route back was via Egerton Village where two older ladies were having a picnic with basket, flask and lunch in the middle of the green. Being well wrapped up, they were a reflection of the time, no mixing indoors for friends from different households.

Stats: 30 plus miles at a good pace to be enjoyed by another bubble at a future date!
