Due to an accident on the A34 the roads were gridlocked which meant I couldn't get to the start. Chris kindly led the group to Denchworth where I had parked up and was frantically fixing a puncture which had mysteriously appeared since I had put my bike in the car after the earlier club ride!!
We got back to the planned route via the Circourt Road and the road to Childrey but we opted to skip Dragon Hill due to the strong blustery wind and the extra distance the detour to Denchworth had added.
It was a tough ride along the spring line road into the wind to Compton Beauchamp where Adrian continued home having cycled over from there earlier. The rarely ridden road down to the Vale made a nice change and then we had a glorious fast run with the tailwind helping including a spirited dash from Baulking.
I left the ride at Denchworth and Chris led the remainder of the ride back. A good ride
