Report:
What a wonderful evening. Enough heat to warm the legs nicely before climbing through the Letcombes and swooping back down again. Meandering alongside the spring line road before turning towards Blowingstone. The road has recently been resurfaced and is the smoothest for miles around. However enthusiasm for such a rare surface go the better of one rider who came a cropper on the bend. Minor mishap to both bike and body and we were all back on the road again.
Enjoying the sunshine we made our way safely back to Grove in search of ice creams and BBQs
Distance:
29.00 km (18.02 mi)
