sunny intervals
Sixteen riders set off from Grove including two new riders, welcome guys! We met Andy B at Appleton to make it seventeen.

A very pleasant evening with no wind for a change, hooray! A well matched group too so we were going quite quick for a 3* ride as there seemed to be no resistance from the air at all tonight and we were bowling along to Charney Bassett, Appleton and Cumnor.

A dash down to Wootton and the one hill of the evening up to Boar's Hill where we stopped to admire the view over to Oxford which was bathed in golden evening sunshine and framed by a hot water air balloon.

We flew down Foxcombe Hill and rode swiftly to Marcham where we split into smaller groups for the unavoidable A-road to Frilford before we could turn to Garford.

The air started to cool as we headed through West Hanney and Denchworth, but we were still back at Grove just after 8.30pm.

A fabulous ride with a very good group of riders and superbly swept by David T. Thanks everyone :)
