Margaret’s Breeze road ride
Meet Margaret, of Sick Bike Repairs, at 9.30am outside The Castle, 393 – 395 High Road, Woodford IG8 0XG.
This Breeze ride will be on the roads around the Essex and Hertfordshire countryside and will be approx 35-40 miles at a brisk pace of 12-13mph. The route will be adjusted to take account of conditions on the day. We will be unlikely to return to our start point and will generally finish near a station and get the train home; however, if you wish you can return to the start point on your own.
