The chat and laughter of the loitering Loiterers was rudely interrupted by the cry of “Middle Ride Away” - six stalwarts mounted up and headed west out of Uxbridge under a bright blue sky but with freezing cold weather conditions – the path though Bucks Golf Course was atrocious – deep mud from the construction vehicles – new paths are being laid such that the dear little golfers can drive their buggies the length and breadth of the course rather than having to walk – beggars belief ! Denham village is always a pleasure to cycle through and Morgan lead a cracking pace up Rectory Lane and so to Crumbs in Chalfont St Peters, successfully avoiding the frequent patches of dangerous ice. Terry Grey was awaiting us ( but without his bike or normal female admirers ) – hot coffees and expansive chat restored our frozen extremities. Chris stripped out of his bright and lairy top clothes to reveal lairy and bright underclothes. A bad choice of linked, uphill, muddy footpaths saw us onto Narcott Lane – round Three Households and a climb up to Botterells Lane and the beech forests. Here Angela left us only half way through her account of her Christmas Ceylon trip. Past Steve Cull’s Alma Mata the Hart & Magpies and a hard slog up to Coles Hill. The leader called for a photo stop at the windmill, mainly to catch his breath and rest his legs. Great views of the Chilterns before we hurtled downhill, avoiding the ice and fearful to brake but all turning right safely at the bottom to take the path to Old Amersham – past the ancient flint and brick hospital the welcoming sight of the Saracen’s Head loomed and once inside the even more welcoming sight of Terry ( bussed it ) buying everyone a pint for his birthday – stout chap – much appreciated. Great selection of 4 real ales and good eats. We didn’t tarry since we wanted to push on while the sunshine and clear skies lasted – a hard push up Amersham Common and the lumpy, boring pavement path to Little Chalfont and on to Gorelands Lane ( ignoring Robert’s polite inquiry as to whether we should take the Old Shire Lane route ) a massive long swoop down Chalfont Road all the way to Maple Cross – quick tea and talk of best ways home. Chris & Robert elected for the ascent into Harefield and home - Sandra climbed west while John W & Stuart braved the North Orbital Road. Good news that there is newly built footbridge across the Colne to the canal and Uxbridge Golf course, replacing the one that collapsed. A great day out in great company and great (but cold) weather – we are much blessed.
