Several different plans for tomorrow. Alice is leading the women's group ride at a nice and easy pace, doing approximately 45 miles with a cafe stop at Blackmore. More details and route here: https://leavalleycc.microco.sm/conversations/313401/
I am going to do a gentler ride than normal (shaking off a cold), probably at C group pace (16mph+), following this route which is just over 50 miles. We will overlap with a sportive for a few miles between Stondon Massey and Willingale and then again from Moreton down to Abridge so the roads will be busier than usual. I'm planning to stop for a coffee (and perhaps Belgian waffle) at the pub in Moreton, which is about 32 miles into the ride.
Both these groups will be meeting at the Town Hall at 9am as usual and both are calling at High Beach on the way out. I expect my group will be there around 9:30 and the women's ride perhaps 10 minutes later. I don't know if there will also a be a social group going as well - they would presumably also pick up around 9:40/9:45 from High Beach if they're out.
That's leaves tomorrow's fastest group. Roland and several others from the normal A and B groups are aiming for a long (>80 miles) ride, but still hoping to be back around 1pm, so they are heading out earlier than usual. If you fancy joining them (and bear in mind this will be ridden at a 'tempo' pace, i.e. NOT gentle, more like 19mph) they will be meeting at the Town Hall at 8am and then heading east for a second rendezvous at Forest Farm Shop opposite Fairlop Waters Golf Course at 8:30am. Their route is also likely to overlap with the sportive a bit.
