A quiet mild humid night on the 14.4 mile Lingfield circuit.
Thunderous showers all day didn’t put off six intrepid riders on the Dormansland-Holtye Road-Cowden-Marsh Green sporting course.
Steve Dennis strolled round the course on his Ambrosio, while the two Bens battled away trying to ride themselves into some form. Maddy and Paul also “met up” on the course, Maddy winning out eventually. Meanwhile Peter went round in under an hour (and then some) for the first time.
Next week is the second 13 miler around the Ashdown Forest after which its back to the evening tens at Horne.

Many thanks to time keepers Chris, Mick and pusher off Richard who with Janet rather sensibly retired to the Plough for dinner.
