An overcast but fair morning and mild. Ten riders gathered for a very friendly ride out to Boar's Hill.

Dave made sure we knew he was back by getting his obligatory puncture near Hinton Waldrist :p

This was one of the easiest rides I've ever had to lead, I rather enjoyed leading from the back for sections of the ride as the group kept nice tight formation. I notice however that I was put to the front for the headwind sections back from Abingdon :)

We stopped at R&R in Abingdon Market Square which does bacon butties etc. on a Sunday. Recommended for future rides. Nick fixed his rattly mudguard whilst we were stopped.

To avoid the A338 in a headwind we extended the ride by going via the Hanneys and Denchworth and still finished before 1pm. A very well disciplined group which was a pleasure to lead. Happy New Year (beer)
