The weather god smiled on us. It should have rained but summer returned especially for the introductory ride. What a glorious morning. Two new faces, Laura and Bob, came to try the Bigfoot way out. Huw, Dave and Grae came to ‘help’ ( another word for having fun). Selsley was dry and fast and we all got sweaty. After the summit picture, see above, we decided democratically (sort of) to take the gated route back via Nailsworth. The farmer even opened the gate for us and instructed us that when we come again and the sheep are behind the second gate, we should be prepared that they would try to escape. After two hours and 20km we were back where we stared. Thanks to all for coming.
