Yesterday afternoon we've arrived at the Redbridge Cycling Centre's The Crackling with just two hours left and as heavy rain stopped. The cafe was full but as the track dried out longboarders, buckboarders and sliders appeared but regrettably no slalom. Finished visit with tea and bread pudding in the cafe ... nice.
