Great to see Louis out on a ride with Corallian - welcome! Des joined the ride as far as Longcot and then diverted home, dreaming of warmer climes, and the rest of the group carried on, leaving the mist of the Vale behind.
The Coln Valley provided some gorgeous views as we skirted the Cotswolds in a somewhat bumpier phase of the ride.
Barry is the new "King of the tyres made from soft cheese" and suffered two blow-outs before we arrived for Sunday lunch, at the delightful Lechlade Garden Centre.
After lunch we had a spirited ride along that very straight road to Kelmscott, and back into more familiar territory up the Corallian and home via Pusey.
