A very enthusiastic 11 of us enjoyed our warmest ride of the year. The concrete road was ‘dismissed’ by the Improver group and a new rider with CS, new to riding the Downs too, who just went for it and happily listened to, and, eventually, acted on, advice about dropping your heels in the ready position. And that was before we reached the trig point….! Outstanding.
Then back through Bishopstone and along the seafront to the Martello for the now traditional coffee & cake.
17 miles and 1250′ of elevation at an average speed of just over 8 mph.
