It was an unseasonably cold Easter Sunday morning, but the skies were blue and the wind was light (at the start at least). Grant, Graham, Mick, Tony and new boy Dwayne met up at Great Hinton. We headed out to Westbury and were making good time until Tony picked up puncture. After much faffing we eventually got going again. I forgot to mention that we bumped into Simon.  At Warminster we took the Imber Road over Salisbury Plain straight into a cold, strong headwind. Time was marching on and we had to get a move on to get back in time for respective family dinners. Fortunately the wind was much less of a problem from Gore Cross and we made the most of the downhill to West Lavington. Graham snapped a spoke before Worton, but didn't let a wobbly wheel hold him back. A great ride.

First and last time I wore my heavy duty Specialized winter gloves. Been to hot to wear them since so have reverted to my "light" winter gloves. Oh, and I bust another spoke 6 weeks after this ride. Bugger!
