Another warm sunny day brought 19 riders out. Jake punctured in East Bridgford and had 2 faulty spare tubes so i gave him one of mine. After a 20 minute stop we got underway. Out to Woolsthorpe and along the ridge, we were originally heading for Hickling, but changed to the Fishing Lakes as time was getting on. We managed to lose Jake on the top road and he went to Hickling. A 40 minute stop and we were off again, back through Hickling and Kinoulton the group splintered coming into Crowell Butler with some pressure being applied at the front, but groups formed and I think everyone got back ok. A good day out and a 190 mile week for me. I managed 42 miles at 16.2 average.

Not many out today, perhaps due to the cold weather. Only 5 in our easy group and we headed for Hickling via Orston, Elton, Barkestone and Harby. Martin hit a new pothole near Orston, but we were quickly back on the road after fixing the puncture. A nice ride in the Autumn sunshine though it was cold - around 5 degrees C with a keen SE wind.
