The ride started from Sudbury, cycling through Wakes Colne to coffee at Earls Colne, then via lovely country roads to Coggeshall, The weather was sunny and warm. Lunch at the Five Bells, Colne Engaine, then the last 15 miles to Sudbury via Bures where we stopped to admire the beautiful countryside which has the Bures dragon painted on the hillside.
The viewing site is the location of the 13c St Stephens Church (1218) which was built on the site of the Coronation of St Edmund of the Angles in 855. A beautiful church and well worth the visit and enjoyed immensely by everybody. Total of 51 (sometimes hilly) miles.
The keen eyed amongst you will have noticed that there are currently no leaders for the rides scheduled on Tuesday 24th April and and Sunday 10th June. I am expecting to be away on these dates but have planned a route if anyone would like to follow it. The coffee stop for the Tuesday ride could be the new Stag Cafe just outside Elmswell, or Teacups in Woolpit on Sunday. The route heads to Lavenham for Lunch which should present some opportunities to suit (even perhaps a picnic from the Co-op…), before heading back to town. If anyone would like the gpx file for the route, please get in touch.
