Jo Little Secondary Ride Leader

Building on last week, we're back out to the Letcombes but then up Hackpen Hill before the glorious downhill to Sevenbarrows, a kind climb up to the Ridgeway and then down to Kingston Lisle and a return via Baulking and Goosey.

Eminently doable for all of us within the available light but please don't forget your lights as it will still be getting dark by the end.
Report:
Hurrah for Secondary Leaders, as the crowds gathered, it was good to know that Jo and I would be leading a group each :)

First week up a big hill this season and what a week to pick! Slightly cool (except on top of Hackpen Hill) and enough of a light mist to make the views magical. Add in a muntjac, a glimpse of a barn owl and that's a lot of ticks on the nature list ;).

Our minds were focussed by the fading light, which ensured that we kept a good pace despite the rolling nature of the route. Thanks to first time rider Richard for ensuring we all crossed the Springline road safely after descending Blowingstone Hill.


Eddie and Andy did sterling work as sweeps and of course Jo ensured her group enjoyed the ride as much as the group I led.
