Ride report

Change of plan! Frantic phone calls earlier in the week had been unable to find a pub with room to spare – this seems to happen every Mothers’ Day. Last year, we chose The Black Horse in Checkendon (this is not a pub you would invite your mother to, unless you were very mean). Over coffee at Milletts, we decided to ride a shortish loop and return to Milletts for lunch. We were glad of the short option, since the weather was getting colder by the hour and with the brisk north-easterly, it felt well below freezing. See the Garmin Connect link to view the revised route.
