The BSCC Do Buckden, St. Neots, Huntingdonshire - 15th May 2010

It's time for the annual BSCC Bike Ride thrash - this year to the Buckden Lion hotel, and a 30 or 40 (depending upon which bit of the route was skived off or not) mile trip encompassing a circuit around Grafham Water and a stop-off at a couple of pubs en-route. The weather's good, and Nosher is hauling The Boy around for the Grafham Water sections (and his first trip with the group) before handing him back to Isobel, who gets picked up and meets us later at the lunch pub. Whilst at lunch, there's much talk about the record for largest steak consumed at the premises - a monster 72oz slab o' meat. On the way back from Buckden, Nosher, Isobel and The Boy stop off at the International Kite Festival being held on Rougham airfield for an interesting couple of hours' diversion.
