Blustery and crisp conditions, but glorious sunshine! all the Neil's as well as a Nick, Andy and Phil all agreed it was a geat ride.

One incedent of note, an angry farmer left his car to make it clear he shouldnt have to slow down for cyclists, however narrow the road or dangerous the conditions.

Evesham is the destination of choice and the route will be something like this.

Weather's looking damp with a chance of mudguards and sprinkling of winter kit. If the forecast deteriorates I may change the destination but will still ride.
