The ride today was cancelled due to high winds and rain in the forecast. However the terrible trio went out anyway on a ride unofficially. This was Sam, Paul and Bob. There was very high wind but the rain was much less than forecast. The group went to first Rowlands Castle for a breakfast? Stop and then an elevenses stop at East Meon
Lunch was at The Old Forge Café, Hambledon. Sam was uncharastically slower than usual on some downhill’s due to slippery leaves on the road. The return was via Buriton Hill with drizzle gathering by nearer Chichester.
Mileage was 50 with maximum downhill speed 30.4 and a wind impeded average speed 0f 11.8. Climbing for the day was 2500 feet.
