Report:
A good turnout tonight with 14 riders up for a hilly escapade, and a warm welcome to Paul.

It was a pleasant warm evening, if a little overcast. No great dramas through Wantage and to the Letcombes although Des did treat us to a comedy "forgot to unclip" moment at the bottom of Hackpen Hill. Everyone did very well on the climb, and before long we were enjoying the superb descent back down towards Sparsholt. A final dash down the hill to the A417 followed before we took things at a more gentle pace through Goosey and Denchworth back to Grove.

Everyone did really well on the hills, so I would anticipate another good evening for my next 2* in June, when weather permitting we'll be looking to tame the dragon of White Horse Hill!

Incidentally, for anyone wondering whether the New Forest 2* ride on the 9th June would be suitable, on tonight's showing, everyone from tonight's ride would cope easily!

Distance:
27.80 km (17.27 mi)
