With grey drizzle, a strong wind and showers forecast I wasn't expecting any takers so I was delighted to see Phil waiting next to the king - then Louis turned up to make three.

With some wind assistance we made rapid progress out to Bampton where I decided to give the Garden Centre a chance to redeem itself for previous misdemeanours. And it did okay with some nice bacon brown baguettes!

The return journey was a bit of a battle with the wind, sometimes a headwind, sometimes a cross wind but we eventually won out and reached Wantage about 1315. On days like this even a short ride feels very rewarding. Thanks guys!
