Report:
A last minute change of plan (a common theme in my rides!) due to some very heavy rain showers earlier meant that we decided to stay low and ride an alternative route around the vale. As we missed out on the work out of riding up Chain Hill the pace was kept up and we completed our 21 miles in 1 hour 24 minutes at an average speed of 14.9 mph. Not bad with a headwind in the first half of the ride. The sun shone and all in all it was a lovely evening ride.
Welcome to Ben Mitchell, who had his first ride with Wantage CUK and thank you to Jon for sweeping and Chris and Sian for giving me some relief from the afore mentioned headwind!
