    It was a lovely dry day, then there was this ford, near Penton Mewsey. I checked the clear water and
    set off through, while daughter rode over the nice wide road bridge.

    No one mentioned the weed and 'moss' on the bottom. No one had put signs up. No one had told my
    daughter that splitting their sides at someone lying in 9" of water next to their bike is a most
    uncycling thing to do :-(

    I hadn't even been in the pub.

    I squeaked all the way home.

    Anyone else done this?

    Not on that particular ford -- nor with a daughter watching.

  3. Not there, but I did (a few years ago) lead a CTC ride into Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire. There
    is a ford on one of the back roads which was fine when I tested the ride (complete with lots of
    camera kit), but on the actual day, at least five riders (including me, and a tandem!) went for a
    drink. Luckily, it was a hot day, so we were all dry by the time we got back to the start.

    Regards,

    Pete.

    'fraid not. My camera was in my bag on the rack. I had to empty the bag of water, but luckily the
    camera survived.

    She did suggest I went back in and laid down so she could take one. No way.

    Yes, on a motorbike in the ford at Kersey in Suffolk.
