Destinations don't need to be inventive, just nice. No apology needed, therefore.

A very pleasant group today, disciplined and actually felt like a proper club run apart from the shock discovery in the cafe that I'm only 31!

Apologies for the reduction in pace on the return leg due to my legs going somewhere else.

Only one wrong turn, I'm getting better :)

If you like it wet and moist, today's A run would have been for you. The first hour was damp but improved to sunshine albeit with high humidity and a nagging head wind. The weather probably accounted for a relatively low turnout even for a bank holiday weekend.

85 miles in total: Out via Bradley Green, Bredon Hill to Toddington and; return via Eckington, Crowle, Crutch/Berry Lane. A fast homeward bound run, wind assisted.

Many thanks Philip, Phil and Ian. Really great club run.
The many highlights included a thunderstorm in Droitwich, a steam engine, a replica team time trial and the avoidance of Saintbury Hill.

Apologies for the lack of mudguards and turns at the front.
