Report:
Seven hardy souls set off from Grove to brave the elements. As we were cycling down the A417 Kath had to pull on the ride leaders reins, my apologies to you all 😬
As we rode up Holborn Hill the skies opened up giving us all a good soaking πŸš΄β˜”οΈπŸš΄β€β™€οΈπŸ’¦ We turned onto the SpringLine which was a bit calmer & we made the decision to divert down into Kingston Lisle, as we enjoyed the descent a horse box decided it was going to reverse across in front of us putting our braking skills to the test 😰🚳We made it back safely to the Fox for 20:00hrs. Joy & Dave carried onto Grove. Despite the weather you were all lovely an easy group to lead for my first ride as leader!
Thank you Dave for sweeping πŸš΄πŸ‘
