Sunday coffee ride to Benson 2

Sunday, 30 August 2020 - 10:00am

There are two rides today, each with a maximum of leader + 5.
There are some changes on the website, the most notable being that the map is no longer an image (ie a photo) but is now an embedded link to Ride with GPS. Unlike a photo, you can zoom this new map to see the route in as much detail as you like. For example, you can zoom in (using the +) to see exactly where on Horspath Road the start is. You also have the option of going directly to the Ride with GPS website.

Ride report

Two groups of 6 rode to the Benson Waterfront Cafe with a half hour gap between the groups on a chilly morning. Benson is large and very well organised which meant the groups managed to overlap and meet up safely. The sun came out for coffee and it was lovely to see some faces for the first time since before lockdown.

The map is an embedded link from Ride with GPS. You can zoom in to see the route in as much detail as you like. For example, you can zoom in (using the + sign) to see exactly where the start is. If you'd like to see the distances, go to the Ride with GPS website by clicking on 'View Full Version' (top left of map).
