Thanks to ride leader David S for this report.
Due to a very wet night and the threat of further heavy rain, only five riders decided to risk it. The ride was relaxed, enjoyable and uneventful. We received a pleasant surprise en route when we discovered that the severely cracked section (near Curlewis?) has finally been repaired. We had a longer than usual stop at Drysdale whilst waiting for a fairly heavy downpour to ease. On the return leg, we chatted to a young woman from Sweden who was cycle touring and arrived back safe and dry. It was all in the timing!
