Report:
A superb turn out for this ride, a total of eighteen riders!
Welcome to Philip Blampied on his first half day ride with the club. We decided to split the ride into two groups for safety purposes. Jane kindly offered to lead the second group, with Jon T & Roger sweeping. Thanks guys for all your help. The roads between Grove & Aston were fairly quiet. Unfortunately Sharon had a small tumble & was unable to complete the ride, thankfully Sharon is ok!! Thanks to Kath for looking after Sharon, much appreciated!

Aston Pottery was a welcome sight, we all enjoyed a hot drink & some delicious cakes. On the second half of the ride,
Janes Garmin didn't want to work, thanks to Susie for her help with route guidance for Jane, further en route Janes Garmin decided to behave! We had a strong nagging head wind on our return journey, which made it hard cycling. As we left Littleworth we had a small stretch of the A420 to cycle along, which was simply executed in groups of three,with out incident! From Denchworth, Nick left us too head back home, while the rest of us headed for Grove arriving at 13:20hrs.

May I say what a friendly & well disciplined group you all were(clap) I look forward too riding with you all on future rides! Thanks Guys;)
