Great to see a sprightly looking Louis who came to wave us off at the start.
A nice social ride followed. The effort we had to put in to fighting the headwind offset the cool temperatures. Saw a large herd of deer near Fernham being chased around the field by a low flying helicopter. Great value food and fast service at Munch Cafe. The Hanney road was blocked to motorized traffic at the Southmoor end and, with the wind now at our backs, it was a joy. The three most hardcore went for a pint after while I went home for beans on toast and a haircut.
