    good Castlemorton Woolridge and As... 48 mi 03:15 14.8mph pace

    Another late start. The forecast was good but I hadn't checked the radar. So I had to take shelter in the lanes in Rye Street from a sharp shower. Then before Redmarley I hid from a deluge.... read more

      That's a great outing, 26 - well done for catering for all! Great Witley is a treasure indeed - I'm glad you took the time to stop by after your refreshment break. I wonder what you were tempted by at the Fox? I note that it is a Chef and Brewer - our local one had Black Sheep on last weekend, a rare treat!

    There were showers about but I headed out anyway. But what's this? That rear tyre feels soft. So an enforced stop to deal with the puncture. The southerly wind was dealt with by diving int... read more

      Well done for catering to the various needs of group - not always easy to manage all expectations! I trust that all got what was needed out of the outing. I see that BrainNav let you down very slightly - I'm sure that today's software update will rectify. :-)

      Nice to see you out today - a week without posting a ride is unusual for you. Bit warm, isn't it?

      On the subject of rain, I drove to Manchester earlier - as soon as I got to the City borders with the ‘Welcome to Manchester’ sign, the heavens opened; three hours of rain later, coming home, at the very same point, the rain stopped. Wish I could get some of it to the allotment!
