The Rose Fair ride gave us a strenuous outward loop via Sutton Bridge and past Foul Anchor (don’t you love that name?) and into Wisbech where we found the church grounds packed with visitors and colourful stalls. Inside, the church was filled with the fragrance of the many floral displays – a tribute to the large number of hard working exhibitors. The parade of floats passed with the usual exuberance, and from the number of donations given to the bucket rattling collectors, funds for the maintenance of the church will have received a generous boost. A sunny ride with a much appreciated tail wind wafted us back to base.
The next Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle will take place on Saturday 1 August 2015. It will offer a brilliant opportunity to get the whole family together to experience the fun and freedom of cycling on traffic-free roads in central London. The route will feature many of the capital’s world-famous landmarks, from Buckingham Palace in the west to the Bank of England in the east via the Houses of Parliament and St Paul’s. London’s greatest sights will create an inspiring backdrop for a memorable day of cycling. http://www.prudentialridelondon.co.uk/The_Events/FreeCycle.htm
