(Not) The Captains Ride - The Trough - Sun 24th April

on Wed, 20/04/2016 - 13:12

As posted the Captain cannot make Sunday so you're stuck with me. I have mapped a route that I intend to take the group on - the forecast looks good BUT if we get a bit wet/cold or we get a few mechanicals then I may make some changes on the fly to ensure we get back mid afternoon - however currently the plan is to make this a century - the ride breaks up into 3rds - the first 3rd is flat, the second 3rd is very hilly with gradients hitting 20%+ and the final 3rd is relatively flat but the pace may ramp up a bit as eager people drive the group home. 

Plan is to head North, keeping off the A6
