Report:
As it had been so hot during the day (approx 34C) we decided that we would cut our hilly ride slightly short and enjoyed the views.
Climbed through the Letcombes up to Sparshot firs, then rather than the original planned route down towards the seven barrows road we took the descent to westcot, an intersting moment was had as we flew around a bend only to meet a tractor that was full width of the road, but were able to safely come to a stop and it sorted Jon's squeaky brakes!

Knobbly tyres and good lights required. We are keen to welcome new riders and have spare lights available to borrow if you let me know. Dark, cold and wet - we'll ride in any two. But please let me know if you are coming so I can tell you if I decide to cancel due to really bad weather.

Report:
It was a very hot evening for a ride, though the four of us turned up, as booked. We were a compact group for most of the ride, spreading a little only on the odd hill. Having averaged a fairly brisk 3* pace, the ride leader slowed us all down, picking up a puncture on the farm track to Ginge. The group loyally chose to stay and wait for the repair, even though we were close to home. The last leg was pleasantly cooler, with sufficient twilight. Thanks to all for a very pleasant ride.
