This was a truly perfect day for riding - sunshine, warmth, not too much breeze, and a great turnout (joint record) of riders.
We split into 3 bubbles (Chris, John G, Caroline, Claire and Paul; John T, Pam, Ken, Phil and Mike; and the rest)
Lots of ups and downs on the outward leg, our bubble managed to lose John (wrong turning at the back of the group) who had no route or mobile phone. Paul went back up Marridge Hill to find him to no avail, but John turned up just as we decided to carry on without him!
The Three Trees cafe worked well and was rammed to the hedgerows with cyclists.
With a slight tailwind, a number of people managed some PBs along the Spring Line, after we'd dodged all the diverted traffic from the M4 closure.
Ice-creams and drinks in the KAH garden, soaking up the rays, followed a glorious ride.
