Ride report

The weather forecast worsened as the weekend approached, but we escaped with nothing more than a couple of short heavy showers. The second shower was timed to coincide with our 50kph descent into Watlington where the stinging rain was not as much a concern as our wet brakes which did little to slow us down.
