South Dorset Section’s Lawrence of Arabia Run on Sunday 1st July 2018
The South Dorset section has gone through some hard times in the last 6 months and yesterday in the Top of the Town car park in Dorchester it was plain to see as we had two opposing runs taking place: this VMCC run and another by those ex-South Dorset Section members who chose to leave the Section. Sad to see. But a good turnout from the Dorset Section in support of our South Dorset colleagues.
I had a cracking ride down to the start with Paul Miles; we went via the top road between Buckland Newton and Charminster, certainly one of my favourite roads in Dorset. As far as the run was concerned, Paul and I stopped at Moreton Tea Rooms…and that was it: we drank several pots of tea, ate tea cakes and chatted for 90 minutes about nothing 🙂 .
