Riders = 8
After flipping a coin when Sorrel's planned ride looked almost identical to last week's, Chris led a more westwards version... and the Jinx struck again - twice. Having had a little joke with Robbie about whether he'd fallen off on the way over, as the group slowed just outside of Grove to avoid two boys who were walking in the road, the unthinkable happened and Robbie came off. Old wounds reopened, the "sag wagon" of Dad was summoned, with David cycling off to join them at home.

We got on our way again, having been passed by the 2* group, and just outside Hanney, Frank signalled he needed to stop, with what turned out to be a broken spoke. Made safe, Frank limped home, and the remaining 5 continued on a modified route, which included some fine "through and off" showing how much distance a group can sneak ahead when working together well. Sorrel's red face showed how much effort had gone into her turns on front, so we slowed it down and trundled back to Grove, the pace rising again, but nobody really had it in them for the sprint.

Just arriving into Grove, the rain we'd avoided all evening turned up, with a very light and refreshing drizzle. A ride of attrition - let's hope there aren't any more of these any time soon!
