The Ride Stuff

The adventures of a couple of happy bikers


Jess rather fancied some biltong, so we decided to head out to Baldock where we knew of a good butcher that made it. It’s about a 90 mile ride (one way) but hey, we’ll go to great lengths for a good piece of ‘tong! Besides, we don’t need much of an excuse to go for a ride.

As usual, we decided to take the scenic route and meandered along various country roads. Unfortunately it started to rain shortly into the ride and what we thought was going to be a short shower turned into a considerable downpour! (In fact it lasted the rest of the day) Undeterred, we stopped at a roadside van selling Mexican food just outside Brandon and had a couple of chilli burritos for lunch. Very nice they were too! We’ll definitely be stopping there again!

After lunch we set off for Baldock again. I didn’t switch on the sat-nav as I had a mental map of where we were going. Unfortunately, I didn’t take into account the UK’s poor road signage and got a bit lost navigating around Cambridge. By now Jess was a bit cold and wet but we eventually arrived at the butcher’s just before 3.00pm – only to find that they had closed at 1.00pm! Oh, well, it was a bit of an adventure, I suppose!
