Ten riders met up in the marketplace and split into two bubbles of four and six. Louis led bubble one, with Nick, Pam and Richard away first and the remaining six of us followed a few minutes later. The cool initial conditions (some started in arm-warmers and gilets) were perfect for taking on the hilly early stages up Chain Hill and on through Ilsley to Compton after which the sun came out and it warmed up nicely for the drop into Streatley. Refuelled at the Village Cafe in Goring we rolled happily on to Wallingford and through Sutton Courtenay to complete the loop. A great way to spend the morning.
