Report:
A warm but damp morning turned rapidly into a wet and windy one! Des and I rode out on the planned ride through the Letcombes and Childrey getting wetter by the minute! Des shed his glasses as he was blinded by the rain. As we approached Sparsholt the rain gave way to patches of blue sky and we shed our waterproofs. Riding at pace to keep warm and with the wind behind us we flew through Kingston Lisle, Baulking and Childrey and went on towards Charney before heading back to Denchworth for our rendezvous at the Fox.
On the way we caught sight of David Bridge on a circular route to meet us and Martin Wigmore who was scrumping walnuts!
As we arrived at the Fox Lizzie Hardingham joined us along with Ali Kempson.
We were greeted warmly at the pub, where we had coffee and a selection of Danish Pastries for £5 which was delightful!

Thanks to Steve at the Fox and all for accommodating us!
Distance:
