This route doesn't get any easier. Today a blustery sou-west wind made forward progress arduous on the outward leg and provided some challenging cross-winds on the big descents. Once we turned to the east at Broad Hinton progress picked-up, although by then the climbing was taking its toll, at least on the leader. Apart from that, weather was generally good, although we caught a heavy shower climbing out of Lambourn. Only a couple of very minor tweaks required to the route-sheet. No incidents or mechanicals to report, except my usual Garmin problems. Must order that Wahoo. Thanks for your company guys.
