Pete went on this ride, led by Brian (our Secretary), and writes:
Thank you to Brian for leading the ride! In total, six riders chanced the weather – and got caught by mid-morning when the rain began. Evidently, the hardy ones made it to the haven of Beckwith’s Emporium for comfort drinks and food (?).
However, yours truly cut off for home after taking a different route to the Hardwater Crossing (that is, of the River Nene, at the Hardwater Mill) to check out the viability of the route. Yes, the road was closed. The bridge had been dismantled. A new “improved model” may be anticipated! But to my relief, there is a temporary footbridge in place. I phoned the good news to Brian and then heading through Earls Barton, and back to Cogenhoe, dripped into our back door!
