Sunday ride to Long Hanborough and Bicester

Sunday, 10 February 2013 - 9:30am

Ride report

Heavy rain forecast all day. Surely no one would turn up. As Rides Secretary, I thought I had better ride down to the start to meet the leaders (Steve and Jan). As it happened, we were 7, so off we went, everyone secretly wishing they had stayed in bed. Except Gavin, who was in training for a forthcoming London to Paris charity ride. By the time we reached our coffee stop, the persistent rain had dampened our enthusiasm to face the remaining 40 miles. The decision to ride straight home was unanimous.
