The day’s rain eased in good time for the roads to dry out and the evening was nice enough – until you turned left at Ipley that is! Most riders were also held up to some extent by cows on the course, and John Hyndman also had a slow puncture. Club champion is Pat Lafford with 24.59. with Alan Bigwood 2nd and 1st handicap 26.24 and John Hyndman 3rd in 26.31.
