Ride report

The six of us gathered in Summertown for a ride to the Old Shed in Charlbury to note its reopening after lockdown. It was a chilly start and the weather didn’t actually warm up much. We enjoyed the 3 Cs at the Old Shed where Mark kindly paid for everyone to celebrate his first payment of his State Pension. We made good speed back to Summertown; Mark and Clare peeled off early to make their way back to Wootton, but not before a large thorn punctured one of Mark’s tyres.
