Strange start... There were nine riders at the Alfred... four went on the ride, and seven were club members. Anyhow it was nice to see Jon, Paula and Jerry again, even if you had something better to do
Big welcome to Pete, out for his first ride!
It was quick for a welcome ride, but with 4 strong riders, there was no holding back. Perfect conditions preceded a very chilled cake stop, with the new bike sheds at Bampton Garden Plants being very welcome, even if they did cause a modicum of surprise. They were nearly big enough to accommodate the massive Didcot peloton that arrived as we were leaving, too.
Fed and watered, it was a nice potter back to Wantage. Thanks to all for a very chilled ride, and especially Louis for chaperoning me back up Manor Hill.
