Ride report

Record turn out for this popular challenge – all four ascents of Brill made better/more challenging by the hot sunny weather. Lovely picnic at the windmill with donations in aid of Breast Cancer Now (£400 and counting) Thanks to all for your generosity.
Back up ‘map’ in case Garmin confused by criss crossing route!
