Kathy led a ride to Whiteparish for the coffee stop at Whiteparish Memorial Hall. Alan was hand to capture on camera the look of joy on the faces of the riders as they zoomed up Dean Hill.

Paul and Margaret led the next charge on their tandem, closely followed by Katrina who was about to overtake them. Sue and Paul (out of sight) followed and then Polly who was zig-zagging to lessen the gradient. Kathy was next up.

Paul and Sue did give the impression that they were enjoying the challenge.; looks can be deceptive, though.

There were lovely smiles from all once the climb was out of the way.

L-R: Paul, Katrina, Gordon, Margaret, Paul, Polly, Sue, Kathy, Gray, Joanne and Alice. Missing from the shot is Eileen and Simon.
