Munch at Log Cabin

A ride of two halves:
- windy and a bit moist
- windy and windy

The forecast was pretty horrendous - 30 mph winds and heavy rain. As it turned out, we were overdressed for the light rain, which gave way to sunshine after our pitstop in Southmoor.

We set off with the wind at our backs. As we turned north towards Abingdon we were caught by some strong westerly gusts. Then we turned into the wind, but found quite a lot of shelter on our way to Munch. It's a great, no nonsense, value for money cafe.

The next leg towards Fernham was quite exposed in places - fortunately Richard and Phil were strong at the front and we kept pretty good formation. Then it became remarkably easy as we turned to the east!

Did I mention the 20 mph westerly gusting at times into the mid 30s?
