4 of us rode this 110km event on Saturday starting at Waddington, just south of Lincoln. Sue Revill, Paul Mellors, Sue Adams and me. Sue and Paul set off promptly at 9am, we were delayed as Sue had a puncture before we even started, caused by a small thorn. On the road by 9.10am, we caught a few backmarkers on the journey south through Brant Broughton, then turned west to Stubton and Dry Doddington and Bottesford. Up Long Lane to the furthest south point at Redmile crossroads, then Barkestone, Plungar and Langar to the café stop at Bingham. We decided to nip home to put some more air in Sue's tyre and grab a spare tube. Sue and Paul went to the Rose and May café. Back on the road, through Shelton and onto the old railway line at Cotham, to emerge at the bottom of Beacon Hill in Newark. Coddington and then back through Stapleford Woods and Haddington, with a final 1 in 6 climb at Harmston to get back to Waddington. We had a decent tailwind all the way back from Newark and we were doing 23mph on the stretch through Stapleford Woods. We got round in just over 5 hours, Sue and Paul were around 20 minutes quicker. A good event with the southern half on familiar roads.
