Morning Ride - Shilton

77 km  x14  x3
Ride Category
A cracking turnout and a cracking ride. 14 of us set off out to Uffington and through the Coxwells (remind me not to try and keep up with Dave up Fernham Hill - I'm still hurting now) to Coleshill. We kept up the good pace and tight formation right the way through to the stop at Bampton Garden Centre - yummy as ever!

Buckland Hill claimed a victim as Adrian's chain snapped - but assisted by Tom and Barry (thanks both!) Adrian managed to limp back to Wantage on a slightly flatter route with a bodged repair (the 9-speed powerlinks arrived just after the said repair had been completed).

All in all, a fantastic morning on the road - just warm enough, no wind to speak of, and a bunch of good riders doing some good riding.
