Report:
A very impressive turnout for what could have been a very wet evening. There were a few spots of rain as we left the car park at Grove but it didn't last to the first roundabout. The rest of the evening was dry with very little wind.

We made a very good pace until we approached Kingston Lisle, where the little climb came as a bit of a shock to the system! Whose idea was that? The descent past the Blowing Stone made up for it and the remainder of the ride was again at a good pace until the traditional sprint back to Grove from the railway bridge. I'm not sure who won, I was nowhere near the front!
Distance:
42.21 km (26.23 mi)
