A ride to Maldon to meet up with the bus-bound Second Sunday pub crawlers.
Leaders: Nigel (cycling contingent) and Ted Ted (bus rabble).
From a cycaleists point of view we will meet 10.00am at the old Maypole Pub (now a shooting and fishing outlet I believe) at the junction of Berechurch Road/Berechurch Hall Road/Bounstead Road.
We will then head to Maldon via Tiptree Tea rooms to meet with the Staggerers at 12 noon.
Their plans are to do the following pubs:
Rose & Crown (Spoons)
Mighty Oak Tap
Ted has suggested food at the Rose and Crown or Queens Head. I will probably not book lunch anywhere unless you want me to.
The Staggerers are not departing until 6.00pm, but I would suggest that we leave about 4.00pm. This will allow time for a stop in Messing on the way home and still get us back before dark. Given the shorter time frame that we will have in Maldon we might need to be a bit more selective about the pubs we visit.
If you are planning to stay in Maldon a bit longer please remember to take lights with you.
