Sunday ride to Benson and Watlington

Sunday, 1 March 2015 - 9:30am

Ride report

Rain and 20mph gusts were on their way, we reminded ourselves as we waited. We waited and we waited. Finally, an hour later when our lunch was announced, we resigned ourselves to the prospect of facing that rain and those gusts. The 2 earlier punctures and then the long delay at lunch. No one was laughing at my full waterproof trousers now.
