Richards first ride as leader saw 11 riders successfully climb Dean Hill. It had helped that he had offered us jelly sweets at a brief stop just after crossing the boundary into Wiltshire.

Kathy’s bike decided that it fancied having a flat tyre. Paul and Gordy stopped to help (whilst Kathy watched!). Richard had helpfully provided a .gpx of the route so the cycle computer lead these 3 on towards the coffee stop.
