After heavy rain at 9.00a.m it was sunny at Lowdham but windy. Only 6 riders and I set off for Sibthorpe on my own as I wouldn't able to keep up.
At Car Colston it started to rain and by Scarring it was a full blown hail storm with very strong winds. I decided to head back via Bingham with hail and rain easing by the Old Fosse. It was difficult to ride straight with the gusting wind, turning left over the "Fosseberg to East Bridgford, I had to walk over the bridge as it was so windy.
I eventually got back to Lowdham and then onto the cycle path home as it was a bit more sheltered from the wind. Cold and wet with numb hands - a day to forget!
