Esther’s kicking off a brand spanking new year of our wonderful Joy Rides with a real treat for January!   Yes, another year bites the dust, but the Beg Bicycles January Joy Ride proposes to blow away the cobwebs, while still retaining some festive cheer!   We have not one but TWO potential foodie stops on the way.  Well, we have to ease ourselves back in gently, don’t we?

The January ride is on Sunday 20 January. We’ll be meeting at Shepreth train station car park at 10.30am.  To fortify us prior to setting off, we’ll have tea and cake at Teacake, a lovely little tea room in Shepreth, which we went to last January and is well worth a return visit for its warm welcome and the owners’ impressive knowledge of aromatic teas!

From there, we’ll cycle to Fowlmere, Newton, Haslingfield and Barrington (yes, we’re going up Barrington Hill, gulp!) and then have another well-deserved pit stop at the Royal Oak pub in Barrington.  Keeping it informal, Esther won’t be booking a table for us all for this stop, so if you’d like to eat please do, or just stop for a drink, the choice is yours!

From Barrington, we’ll continue back to Shepreth. The cycle route is a round trip of 11 miles.

Really hope you can join us on 20 January!  Any queries, as ever, please do drop Esther a line at
