Yesterday, I was eagerly looking for Bernard at the start, obviously to sign-on but mainly to ask him why it was called The Ox Drove Run…only to find out that he had already re-named it to something boring like the Northern Circular Runaround. For me, it will always be The Ox Drove Run. 🙂
A good turn out with 19 people signing on and a very pleasant 34 mile run from Marsh and Ham car park in Blandford to the Horton Inn via the Tarrants, Melbury Abbas, Zig Zag Hill, Tollard Royal and the Gussages. I spotted Peter Miller breaking down close to the start with a broken chain split link, but he had a spare, so a nice recovery and he made it to the pub before the rest of us! I’m not sure Dan Skinner on the big Kawasaki was so lucky; he seemed to have starting problems with a flat battery.
Thanks Bernard for yet another good run. If anyone else wants to organise a run, we would be very grateful, so please get in touch. Don’t leave it to the same few Committee members to do it….
