Sunday Shortie 2 hours at a riding pace of 20-24km/h (13-15mph). May be hilly.

PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO TOMORROW MORNINGS WEATHER FORECAST THIS IS NOW AN AFTERNOON RIDE START IN WANTAGE MARKET PLACE AT 1.30pm

A short hilly ride finishing with the glorious swop that is Chain Hill :). Slightly shorter than normal as I am slow up hills ;). Plenty of ways to shorten if needed.
Report:
We were all grateful that we had waited until the afternoon for our ride. However with the wind still strong and reports of how difficult the wind was on the hill by Challow Cricket Club, we decided to stay flat.

The head wind was interesting and I was very grateful to others taking the lead as we battled our way via West Hanney to Southmoor. The road to Charney was a joy before once again fighting the wind to Gainfield. There was little respite as we cycled towards Fernham. The payback was a joyful ride back via Baulking and Goosey, wind what wind ;).

A few of us finished in costa, where the only cake had was definitely not worth the calories :(

A great group that all worked together, kept an eye out for each other and appreciated getting out on our bikes.
