Every month I meet some friends for a cycle ride. I have been doing it now for over thirty years. The arrangement has no name – they rejected my idea of putting it on a formal basis by calling it our 'menstrual cycle'. The meeting place has changed several times over the years. Our most successful rendezvous is the current one, viz: the Griffin's Head pub at Chillenden.
The Griffin's Head at Chillenden.
We start off with a cup of coffee and an animated discussion over where we intend to have lunch – the mandatory qualification of the venue being that it must be another pub. This morning we took our refreshment in the garden. The landlord has a clearly stated policy towards dog-owners using this facility.
