A glorious midsummer day evening. And a great group of riders, including Kirsten Smith on her first Corallian ride. Welcome Kirsten. An impatient lorry-driver with a very loud air-horn on the 417 failed to impact the mellow feel. Didcot was like a ghost-town and was traversed without incident. A goodly pace was maintained throughout. We finished off with a rehydrating pint in The King Alfred's Head before heading for home.
