Report:
A wonderful group of nineteen riders gathered for the 25thAnniversary. We decided to split the group into two for safety purposes. Kath very kindly offered to lead the second group. Terry & Yvonne kindly volunteered to sweep for us. Thank you to all three of you for your support (clap)

We had a very pleasant ride through Sparsholt & Westcot.
Dragon Hill proved to be a tuff climb,with the heat for all of us (sweat) (sun) who's silly idea was this (wasntme)
Well done to everyone, (clap) especially David Lynch on his first climb up Dagon Hill.

Unfortunately I had two separate reports of car drivers being antisocial :( some of our riders were cut up whilst climbing Dragon Hill, also John V was verbally abused by another car driver at the top of the hill :@
This incident had no relevance to our group!
Well done to John for dealing with the situation in such a calm manner!!

After we had caught our breath & taken a selfie or two, thank you Andy. ;) We pushed on to Ashbury & Shivenham via the foot bridge, where we all had to dismount & push our bikes over. Then it was a nice flat ride through Longcot & Fernham with a nice view of The White Horse.

As we arrived in Uffington, we met up with the 1 & 2 * groups which made perfect timing.
A big thank you to all of you, for all your support, & for being such a very friendly & a perfect group to lead (clap) :D
Distance:
51.50 km (32.00 mi)
