Weather:
windy (fine)white cloudwindy (fine)
Report:
A heterogeneous group of 20, well just over 20 if you count Ruth and Nick Fisher's two little ones in Nick's trailer, set off from the Market Place, which was warm and nicely sheltered.

We quickly encountered strong headwinds, which broke the group up a bit. David Bridge did a splendid job as sweeper. After the first hill out of Letcombe our numbers were reduced as some riders could not resist the challenge of Hackpen while others asserted pressing bar keeping duties dispensing mulled wine.

Our route through the little villages was actually quite well sheltered and then after Uffington we came to the hill, which each of us took at our own pace.

The return journey was more fragmented as riders took different options, but quick - with a roaring tail wind.

Jack Frost was not missed.
Distance:
35.00 km (21.75 mi)
