Ride report

Three riders risked a rather poor weather forecast to attend this very short, Wednesday morning ride to Farmoor Reservoir, via Bayworth hill, Old Boars Hill, Besselsleigh and Tumbledown, but in the event experienced only light rain, on the final leg, following coffee taken at the Waterside Café.
