Is it Autumn - feels like summer - clear blue skies, warm. 12- 13 in the faster easy group lead by Norman, 44.5 miles, average 15.8 mph. Out to Statham and up the hill, left turn along ridge. Steadily increasing wind but too our backs once we had turned towards Knipton. This was a good route to Little Jacks - done the 'other way round' it is uncanny how different everything looks on this familiar route.

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.
