Ride report

Showers were predicted for the evening (it was an outdoors production). The worst rain we had was on our ride from Oxford to Eynsham via the A40 cycle track. At the production itself, we got away with some brief drizzle, fast moving clouds and for a while, the low evening sun providing a very low but bright back light to the stage. Most of us had brought along some food for a picnic, but Jon and Clare definitely got the (none existent) best picnic food award.

The production was about Mr Cruft, who it seems was a slightly dubious character. At least Mr Cruft had real dogs to deal with. Mikron’s usual creativity saw actors coming on making woofing noises, while carrying stiff leads with an empty collar on the end!
