Phil L led this ride and writes:
I must admit, looking out of the window early this morning with the wind blowing hard and sleeting buckets, it didn’t look promising for a brisk ride. But, “When the going gets tough, the tough etc.,etc., …. !”
So four of us turned out and “Dares yuh!” And, amazingly, had a good ride ‘cos by mid morning the sun was out and, whisked along by a fierce following wind, we shot to Olney pretty quickly. But then WHEN we turned into the wind….ouch! That was a hard slog to Castle Ashby and coffee stop.
But hey, we got 35 pretty brisk miles in and enjoyed it!
