It has been said that 'cancelling' the Dunwich Dynamo is as preposterous as cancelling Christmas. But last year both things nearly happened. But what about 2021? Not even King Canute could stop there being a full moon on July 24th and surely all restrictions will be over by then.


Ride to the Ingrebourne Way

"I'm not allowed to say how many planes joined the raid, but I counted them all out and I counted them all back." - Brian Hanrahan

By an amazing coincidence, although we had arranged to stagger our ride start points by as much a 20 minutes, the absence of many riders on this ride caused us to coalesce our start times somewhat, and, with the Woolwich Ferry only running one boat every 25 minutes, we were able to get onto the same ferry all at once!

However, it was disappointing to find that when we got to the Ingrebourne Valley Visitor centre, we found it was closed, when lockdown rules could have allowed them to offer takeaways. The same could be said of the decision by Cycling UK and British Cycling to suspend ALL rides, when there is no reason why cycling clubs can't continue to encourage their members to make use of standard club routes. But all was not lost, as the Lakeview Place Cafe at Harrow Lodge Park was offering takeaways and it was only a few miles away.
