Sunday 11th March – Foggy to Fontmell
No mud and just a few hills as all six rode 33 miles through the fog from Ansty to Fontmell Magna. The most complete peloton picnic yet at Fontmell playground was followed by a 150 metre ascent of Fontmell hill – everyone was blowing after that one! Then seven miles downhill on a rather busy lane took us to Blandford and a cycle path past the brewery.
Finally a few more hills to Winterborne Stickland and Bulbarrow again, before back to Ansty. Rick was unanimously awarded the yellow jersey for discovering that inflated tyres make a difference. Also a record for getting five bikes and cyclists onto / into a Renault Scenic.
Fabulous alliteration by Maccy:
Fickle Fog From Fox Follows Fearless Free-wheeling Friends Finding Fitzpaine, Fontmell, Forum; Finally Fizzling For Fast Fun Finish…….F(Ph)ew!
