Fantastic day for an audax. Sunny and very warm. Most riders complained a little bit about a headwind for the last 20km
A record 75 finishers is brilliant. One rider required hospital treatment after a tumble but latest news is that it's nothing too serious. Thanks to the riders who stopped to help and to Hugo who went to check on him and to collect his belongings.
A massive thank you to Nick & June Dunton and Tracey & Jasmine Talbot for all their help at HQ. To Katherine Boyce and her charity for doing the after ride catering. Andy Pixton for helping to clear up at the end. And to Barry, Chris and Hugo for manning the controls and help setting up HQ.
The hall is already booked for 2018 so put 8th April in your diaries
UPDATE :- the injured rider had a nasty head wound stitched up at the JR but no other injuries or consequences and he'll be back riding very soon!
