Report:
Ten riders on what had been a blustery day but wasn't actually that bad when we gathered ready to roll. A few glimpses of the Sun but a bright evening even without.

We did have the headwind leg outwards to Denchworth and the seldom cycled Circourt Road and onwards to Childrey. Plenty of shelter from there to the drop to Uffington though.

We did the full climb from Uffington using Broad Way and we all climbed Dragon Hill splendidly. After a group photo we dropped down to Woolstone and back to Uffington.

We had a lovely tailwind all the way back via Baulking, Goosey, Charney Bassett and Lyford. And a final dash to Grove via Denchworth.

All in all a splendid evening's riding :)
