Report:
A really good turn out for my second lead of the season, 11 in total,best of the season, with a few of the usual suspects missing,Pete Cowan gone into that other world of mountain biking and Andy Cowan doing something with horses,best you ask him about that.

On to tonight`s ride, an assortment of abilities and experience managed riding together heading for a hilly start up Eastmanton Lane where we split into two groups for the fast descent into Lambourn. Back together we headed into a head wind towards the final climb up Ashbury Hill followed by another speedy decent towards Shrivenham delayed only by someone losing a water bottle.

From there the group lost shape as it was every man or woman for themselves with Ruth, Frank and Jason putting the Hammer down. Once again the group came together in Fernham for the final push homewards. Frank split off at Charney Bassett to add a few extra miles to his ride and the rest cycled together with the usual Denchworth dash. No idea who won as I wasn`t anywhere near the front, my money would be on Ruth,who picked up more QOM`s to add to her collection,just pipping Jason.

It was good to see some new faces including Darren,Martin,Mike and Richard stepping up to 4* and once again many thanks to Hugh for sweeping.
Distance:
63.00 km (39.15 mi)
