A new club record of 16 riders on a lovely day for a ride after last week's washout. Light winds, sunny intervals, cool but not too cold.

We split into three bubbles (thanks to Chris and Louis for leading bubbles one and two) and set off for a relatively flat ride towards Lechlade, taking in the Corallian escarpment at Coleshill. We stopped briefly at the Old Father Thames statue in Lechlade which bizarrely Andy had never seen before!

There were no dramas in bubble three with plenty of chat about the Giro etc.and we arrived at Bampton Garden Plants just behind bubble two.

The café is well set up for being COVID secure and refreshments arrived quickly and another staggered start meant the bubbles kept apart for the entire ride.

A short run back to Wantage where a few went to the KAH for post ride refreshments the rest of us off to enjoy the afternoon sunshine. Great ride thanks for coming :)
