EACC Steeple Morden Run

24 September 2015

Photos and report by David Osborn

Luckily, we carried out the route check on the Tuesday by car, as halfway round there was a torrential downpour and doubts began about Thursday with bits of wet forecast.

Well on the day we need not have worried as the 100% accurate weather stone at The Chequers predicted ‘DRY’ see picture (everyone should have one hanging in their garden!)

I had some feedback from riders who, for various reasons were unable to take part.  Leaving an intrepid five in the line-up, plus the breakdown backup, which remained unused.

The run of some 34 miles, mainly of a scenic nature on very quiet lanes and an unavoidable bit of A-road, was classic moped country.

Was the midweek run a success?  Well it was enjoyed by all and deemed a good route, and we’ll look at the event in depth for a possible re-run in 2016

Lunch was back at The Chequers and the sun was still shining.
