I felt a bit rough as I set out. I thought I'd see how things felt at the meet. Jules H and Pete M suggested I check things out at Tewkesbury. Not too bad so I kept rolling. Things got better. Nothing quite like fresh air and some small amount of sun behind the many clouds. We looped by Kemerton for the thatched cottages and then just after Beckford we pulled up to watch a pair of Red Kites float closely overhead. Best views ever for Jules. On for Wormington it was decided to go by Aston Somerville and an unusual route through Childswickham before we hauled up at our favourite cafe in Broadway.

We retraced to Childswickham to find that the feared wind had dropped so we made good time to Elmley Castle. Kestrels seemed to be much in evidence today but no Buzzards. We took our usual run around the Combertons and used the village route through Defford. Traffic was backing up at the roadworks before the bridge at Upton. Everyone will be glad when this project is complete. We said our goodbyes and I took my usual route back by Hanley Swan. I'd somehow shaken off the earlier ailments and ridden mostly quite well. Sense had been applied tho' as I didn't push it at all today.
