Everyone is invited to join this ride which will be a special occasion. Thursday would have been Max’s 79th Birthday and his family are coming up from Suffolk to scatter his ashes along a quiet local lane.
We will meet from 10.30 a.m. at Waterloo Farm Café, Great Oxendon, LE16 8NB. [Grid Ref SP 740 843]
The Ride will proceed to Great Oxendon turning right up the hill then left to Clipston, through the village to turn towards Kelmarsh, cross over A508 towards Harrington to turn left down the hill towards Arthingworth. Here we will meet up towards the bottom of the hill by the last clump of trees at noon [Grid Ref SP 754 806]. The family will then conduct the scattering of Max’s ashes. Afterwards we shall proceed through Arthingworth up the hill to Desborough for lunch at the Tapas Grill and Wine Bar. This is attached to “The Ritz” in Station Road, NN14 2RL. [Grid Ref SP 803 833]
Richard Daniells has circulated these details as there may be quite a few cyclists who are not regular attendees at Thursday Club rides but who may like to come to pay their last respects to Max in a local quiet spot of the kind that Max enjoyed.
We look forward to seeing you on this special occasion and our last link with one of most loyal supporters of and workers for our pastime.
