The Arkesden pre 30’s Run
The weather forecast wasn’t looking good with heavy rain heading towards Essex, the morning started overcast and damp but as ever there is always hope it might miss us.
Arriving at Arkesden we were greeted with tea, coffee and biscuits at the village hall.
Some 20 bikes signed on for the run and after the customary tinkering and chat it was time to saddle up, almost as a trigger the rain started albeit light at first but just enough to make things uncomfortable, especially for someone thinking he had grabbed his wet trousers only to find it was another jacket.
One by one off the bikes went disappearing into the Essex countryside heading for The Rising Sun at Halls Green, Weston, Nr Hitchin for lunch.
I wished them well as I had to make my way home.
