sunny intervals
Wonderful turn out of 18 riders (plus buggy with "new model" in tow). For safety and "management" reasons, it was decided to split into two groups of 9. John Tr very kindly taking up the mantle to lead the second group.
Nice sunny day, although maybe a bit cold (On typing this the next day it is cold wet and miserable so turns out we picked the right day!)
At the start, had to phone ahead to the Huddle, a new tea stop, to advise numbers & ETA. Lady at the café was pleasantly "shocked" when I said how many riders...
From the front group, Steve & Lorna took short cut to the tea stop, the rest of us, leader has to confess, were pushing the 1* remit a little, (route extended slightly via Uffington due to a closed bridge) in order not to get to the café too late, taking a short cut to Stanford to save time (leader worried café would want to close!). Turns out the second group pushed the pace as well for the same reason.
Nice long tea stop, an excellent new venue. Some riders left first to get back, the remaining 11 or so of us doing the short 5 or 6 mile route back, definitely at true one star pace!
Thank you everybody for a great ride, to John Tr for leading as well, and to the backmarkers - stirling efforts all round.
