Weather:
sunnysunny intervals
Report:
11 regular riders gathered for a swoop around the Vale. On heading out from the car park we were hailed by a guest rider, Paul, that John T suddenly remembered he had invited along :o . His memory jogged he headed back to the car park to 'collect' him. Where had he gone -in an instant he had managed to disappear. So while the group headed off John buddied up with his pal. An easy ride out through Denchworth with a few stops to allow John and Paul to catch up. Still no sign until we were on our way from Stanford in the Vale to Pusey where they joined us from the wrong direction!! (hi)

Finally together we made our way very easily over the A420 and clockwise parallel with the main road. Over the sneaky footbridge brought us back and a sociable loop back. Despite a small chain slippage just outside Denchworth we were all back by 8.20.
Distance:
32.19 km (20.00 mi)
