Wednesday 19th August started well with bright sunshine seeing 47 riders off from Jenner’s cafe in Maidenhead. This is the biggest midweek ride that John Tipping, Mick Hill or myself have been involved in. Thanks John and Mick, I couldn’t do it without you. It was great to see a good turnout of Willesden riders 14 or so in all. Thanks for all your support guys.
The ride saw many ups, the biggest and best being Turville Hill and a few downs before reaching our 2nd riverside cafe in Benson. Unfortunately not everyone got back dry and the rain arrived about 3.30ish.
I think most people enjoyed it despite the rain and the ups. I have been persuaded to bring back the “10 Bridges” and “Kaf 2 Kaf” rides, so watch this space.
All the colours of the Willesden prepare to set off.
Jim and Wendy’s friend sets off on her first Audax.
