Sunday 29th January – Two go over Abbotsbury hill

With many regulars busy elsewhere, a frosty morning welcome  saw a small turnout with Lindsay and peloton debutant Pete T on mountain bikes.  A new route, Winterborne Monkton, up the black ice hill, west past Friar Waddon, Waddon House, onto Portesham, then bridleway to Abbotsbury.

A very steady ascent up Abbotsbury Hill, with a stop for a few photos, picnic at the top, then back east along the South Dorset Ridgeway.  A photo stop at Hardy’s monument followed by a wizz down into Martinstown and back home for breakfast.  23 miles clocked up, nice mix of hills both ways, lanes, tracks and soft bridleways.
