42 miles, average 15.6 mph. Route - good mix of gradients and rolling terrain, light breeze. Climb from Eakring - surface non-existent, when will that road be relied? Cafe stop - Haybarn Cafe, tasty scone, jam and butter, good coffee. The flapjacks are enormous, should there be a new challenge - eat it all at one sitting, - Barry managed it!

Only 8 riders today with heavy frost and ice about. We all set off together and kept away from the small roads to stay safe. At least the sun was out! This made it a shorter ride than usual to Farnsfield where the café was very busy. This made the stop a little longer but we weren't keen to leave the warmth anyway. At least we managed to get a ride in and stay safe.
