After lunch we tackled the fickle road surface of Weare St - with potholes now edged in white! Following the familiar roads north via Capel, Newdigate and Henfold we all looked forward to the last climb of the day - Box Hill, and the National Trust cafe for tea.
There was general agreement that a hill-top finish was appropriate for a summer ride - especially as Simon's photos demonstrate most had saved their climbing legs for the final push! Thirteen reached the tea stop, with ice-cream a welcome addition to tea and cakes.
Thanks for Mike Barrett for back-marking and photos courtesy of Geoff and Simon. A good turnout - ridden at a nice pace resulting in a early finish!
