Leaving Uxbridge were, DT, Bernie Green, John Hare, Peter Gimber, Iain Macdonald and Jim Swan. According to John we impersonated impoverished estate agents (residential) by checking out properties from our bikes on half the streets between Uxbridge and Edgware. Things improved slightly and we became municipal park keepers as we approached our coffee stop in Canons Park. Disaster!! The cafe was closed until Wednesday. And we had to be home by 5! Plan B, decamp to Edgwarebury park for an emergency cup of �1.50 tea. Apart from the price the only other problem was that this cafe was also likely to be closed after an imminent consultation meeting next week and the 50 visiting dogs who were all having a very vocal discussion about where they would go if it closed. Most of them said it was a ruff situation. They all calmed down a little when we told them the Canons Park cafe was reopening on Wednesday. Off up Edgewarebury Lane, John made his excuses and did a runner, he was going to take a short cut home via Aylesbury, or Watford either way he had had enough of us. Around the back of Boreham Wood went well. Small technical error in navigation meant we got to see Shenly twice, very nice, (mental note, turn right at the Mop and Brooms pub; in fact just go in the Mop and Brooms pub then go home). At last, South Mimms, a picturesque village in the corner of a motorway service area and a new puffing stop, The White Hart, EN6 3PJ, (see picture). The Loiterers went wild with ecstasy, (see picture), about the quality of the beer (McMullens) and the fantastic food. They were so pleased they all chipped in to buy their leader lunch and more beer. (In case you had not noticed this is a narrative in the surreal fantasy style). The trip home was so uneventful that Peter got bored and left having only completed half the Ebury Way, (he missed the best bit). At Rickmansworth the bridge into the pleasuredrome was closed so we stayed on the road through Mill End. After Maple Syrup my legs turned to Raspberry Jelly, so we had that rather than an afternoon tea stop. I think I'd better stop now and go and have a lie down. DT
