Stopped for coffee and met a member of Central London CTC in Upminster. They were on a mission to Hanningfield reservoir and I rode with them until I went down the rut. A nice bunch of people and I would recommend a ride out with them. This ride has taught some lessons though Remember a helmet/hat Take a spare innertube Take drinks and energy food ALWAYS take your mobile (This I did do luckily)
