Hastings Ride Thursday 23 Jun
« on: 23 June 2022, 19:31 »
50 miles,17 mph, 2,500 ft
Gary, Kevin, Paul, Scott, Gordon, Alan, Graham (RL), Peter, Lynn

On a hot humid Thursday morning 9 of us left the Rec for a 50 mile outing. The route  started with the short warm up Atherston climb, on to Ilmington, across to Mickleton and then it was the Campden Road climb. Through a busy Chipping Campden that included narrowly missing an over enthusiastic road side fan, luckily a good shout did the trick, although he missed getting his smart phone selfie with Gary.

The final longest climb was up past the quarries to the A44 - a good Strava segment one. Then down to Blockley with coffee at Veg. Matters. After dodging the showers the 4 hardier riders outside finished their wet coffee, while the insiders were the dry sensible ones. To complete the shorter flat run home was polished off in a good time avoiding the showers and maybe saving on a bike wash.
