Ride report

Everyone who said they were coming turned up for group 3 in good time and we were able to set off for Bampton a little earlier than the published start time of 1030, enjoying a pleasant ride out, without too much contrary wind. On the way home a slight impetuousness took over and at Cumnor we found ourselves overtaking group 2. With the agreement of all in the group, the official ride concluded at the bottom of Cumnor Hill.
