Audax 105 km. Glorious sunny weather, light breeze. Beautiful route passing through Market Bosworth and Sutton Cheney including sight of the Battle of Bosworth Field. Quiet roads with good surfaces through pretty thatched Leics villages. 3rd time Paul and I have completed this audax - we’ve never tired of the route. Completed in 5.5 hours, 2 cafe stops, average speed 15.3. Good organisation and food at start and finish - Moira village hall.

A cold day, but not as cold as yesterday. Still a little ice around so kept off the lanes at first. Some went to Newark while ten of us had an easy ride to Farnsfield including Jon Kettell up from Somerset on a visit. A very social gathering at the Woodberry Café for a longer stop than usual. Clockwise from left Mark Haywood, Richard Buckwell, Kevin Humphreys, Ed Ward, Jon Kettell, Phil Hooks, Dave Gretton, Michael Falter, James Pam and Dave Waring.
