Last Sunday’s scheduled Border Run was ruined by poor weather. Some brave souls did the run, and full marks to them, but Gabby Hunt and Pete Dungey kindly agreed to re-run the route yesterday for anyone that turned up at Henstridge Golf and Leisure. No signing-on, no fee, as this was deemed a bunch of friends turning up for an informal ride….and a great full English breakfast before hand for those who wanted one (me!). Mid-week runs don’t usually have a particular high attendance compared to weekend runs, but there were at least 12 of us yesterday and a good, and dry, time was had by all.
My favourite photo of the day? The above snippet of William Webb at the coffee stop. A photo for our next Quiz Night perhaps?
On the run today we had 10 riders, although the forecast was bad, we did have a bit of rain on the run but most of it surprisingly was dry with a light drizzle at times, the route was modified slightly after the coffee stop at Crockerton Shopping Centre then back to Henstridge for a very nice lunch the run was still about 45 miles..
Saying that, l did get pretty wet on the run home to Blandford as it was pouring down.
No photos l am afraid as my battery went flat on my phone.
Gabby & Pete have offered to rerun the Border Run on Wednesday this week (15th August) as the weather forecast is looking good, l know Paul Miles and a few are looking forward to it.
Gabby has organized breakfast from 9.30 at Henstridge for those who want it, so if you are free on Wednesday please turn up for the run it is an excellent route.
Any questions can l ask you to contact Gabby or Pete please.
