Report:
A bridge too far,hilly and fast !
Five regular riders set of on a flat start to the ride with all taking turns on the front.
Skirting Lechlade for the first hills of the ride saw the group split,Nick, Richard and Andy took the right hand fork at Coleshill waiting out of sight from tail enders Jason and myself thinking we had been dropped, sorry Jason for holding you back ! We carried on towards Faringdon on the planned route getting back to the Fox by 8:35 .
The other three now lead by Nick who to his credit was on my original planned route before I posted a new reduced route at the request of the ride secretary,amended after Nick had loaded on to his Yahoo device. Apparently they encountered cows loose in the road which delayed their progress and so decided not to join us at the Fox.
All ended well and with a note to ones self not to amend well made plans in future
Distance:
58.00 km (36.04 mi)
