Plenty of short sharp climbs, plus Court Hill which is a tough start, but everyone took them in their stride and the many pauses to re-group were kept short. Once we left the A338 the lanes were very quiet and allowed a very pleasant sociable ride. Good to have new member Peter on the ride, as well as recently-joined Glyn and Drew. Thankyou to everyone and particularly Rachel for sterling work as sweeper. Four of us topped up our fluids at the KAH afterwards.
