Report:
We split the ride early this evening - Des's plan was to get out to Compton Beauchamp with the sportier group, so we bade the leisurely group farewell at Denchworth. A cracking pace was set through Charney Bassett, Gainford, Hatford, Shellingworth, Fernham and Longcot, where Kevin became the first to relent, texting Des his farewells.

Second (and temporary) "loss" was just after Longcott, where Chris Wyatt went (the wrong way) off the front and was chased down by Peter, catching up with the group again at the Downs Road, just above Compton Beauchamp. We eased the pace a little down through Kingston Lisle (saying our farewells to Liam on his first ride with the group - welcome aboard Liam!), and stumbling across the remains of the leisurely group coming in the opposite direction.

We returned through Goosey and the obligatory Denchworth, having dropped Chris Wyatt off the back - cycling over from Lambourn without any tea had taken it's toll on Chris - ah well - you always remember your first bonk - jam sandwiches next time?

Thanks to Des for leading the sporting ride - we covered 44.5km and averaged over 25km/h (that's 16 mph in old money), and there was concensus at the end that it was a fantastic ride, speedy, a little different to usual, but great nonetheless. As we panted our recoveries in the car park, the remainder of the leisurely group arrived, as did Richard out walking his dog!
