We set off under grey skies, but it wasn't long before the sun came out to warm our bones (sun). This was just as well as it kept our spirits up at Bablock Hythe, where a new record for longest time ever taken to fix a puncture was set. I'm sure those steel tyre levers are museum pieces, or should be ;). After much friendly joshing we were eventually back underway. Soon after this we paused at the roadside and observed 2 minutes silence for Remembrance Sunday. Further down the road the Humble Bumble Cafe sorted us out with great cakes, butties & coffee. Inside is small and was full of locals, but we were happy sitting in the sunshine on the veranda. This would have taken a nice photo but I was to busy scoffing. The homeward leg was uneventful. All in this was a relaxed social ride in the sun with good food and great company - happy days. Thanks to all who came along.
