The Little Green Ride goes for a Chinese

A typical Little Green Ride usually includes a pub lunch with traditional pub fayre - ploughmen's and roast dinners. Just occasionally, though, we try something different. In September we went to the farm for lunch and in October we decided to go for a Chinese. Our destination was the Lamb and Flag at Colliers End. We cycled there from Knebworth via Alston.

I think the food was liked by all. The pub is quite big and there were virtually no other customers so we were able to enjoy our drinks in the comfort of the lounge bar area before proceeding to the restaurant area to eat when the food was ready. The staff coped with us very well despite us not being unable to book beforehand.

After lunch we cycled via Watton at Stone to Welwyn North where we boarded the train home without having to carry our bikes up stairs. As we were early several people decided to cycle back to London. A great day out with some new faces as well as regulars and returnees. We cycled about 25 miles. Thanks to Sue, John Snuggs and Bill for back and mid-stopping.
