It appeared to be a cold murky morning, but nonetheless, 8 riders set off. Up near to the Corallian quarry, Des suffered a pothole-induced puncture, and retired from the ride.
Onwards through Clanfield, the group showed fantastic discipline in maintaining a double line, and in general it paid off with motorists respecting the group, and finding it much easier to pass a shorter group than you normally see with single lines.
Another excellent coffee stop at Bampton, with John eyeing up a full breakfast but ultimately resisting.
Buckland Hill gave Nick the KoM for the day, proving that his back is now better!
