I have complied a list with the help of some members, that gives details of cycle friendly cafes and tea rooms where we like to stop in our area when we are out riding. I thought this might be useful if you ever visit this part of the country and wanted to plan a ride in the lovely countryside.
If you are aware of any that we might have missed then please email me with details and I will add them to the list which can be found in the document section at the bottom of the East London/Essex Region pages.
Hope you find it useful.
Also, I have found a very useful website, halfwaycoffee.com, which shows on a map cycle friendly cafes, country wide.
It is with regret that I have to pass on the news of Ken Saunders death. He, together with his wife Margaret, were founder Regional Officers for the North Essex, South Suffolk area of the Tandem Club. He passed away on Tuesday 6th March after a return of his throat cancer. They had a tandem trike and were often to be seen out in the byways of Suffolk and farther afield, with their dog Lulu in a carrier behind. Ken was a great character, very friendly and with a good sense of humour, he will be sadly missed.
