Lovely morning for a ride. We were a nice round ten for today’s ride to The Caddie Shack, a new venue for us, and pleasant enough it was too. Basic fare but none the worse for that, and the coffee was good apparently.

They could probably do with some new benches though – in fact we shared a bench with electrician Billy from DIY SOS…😁

The “hilly” route out was via Hitchwood, St Pauls Walden, Kimpton and Gustard Wood. Geoff P, Kris and Alan arrived shortly before most of us, as Geoff made his own way via Gustard Wood, as did Alan and Kris as they sped off in front and missed the turn to Ayot St. Lawrence.

Paul W from the Bedford group also joined us, making eleven in the pic.

Alan and Andy left early after a coffee and Toastie, returning via Preston, with the rest of us making our way back to Whitwell where we split into two; myself, John D and Kris heading North and Geoff P leading Kevin, Jack, Mia and Geoff H via St. Paul’s Walden.

A warm day with some sun and a bit of a breeze, pretty good riding conditions.
