The rearranged Sunday ride started off in the cold on Saturday (better than cold, wet and windy, we'd decided) morning, welcoming Jez Kent for his first Corallian ride. Some of the lanes were still frosty and in a few cases, icy, as we wended our way over towards Tetbury. The colours of the trees and especially the hedgerows made for a very Autumnal experience.

For 30 minutes before our stop in Malmesbury, we had a lovely drizzle to contend with, easily fixed by a lovely breakfast by the lovely ladies at the garden centre.

After the stop, we had a mix of quiet roads and lanes, and some rather splendid road surfaces that aided progress back to the start point. Quite a delightful morning.
