A cold one today.Because of weather warning route was changed to circuit nearer home.Our group did 4 X laps not quite taking 2 hrs. We still had some petrol in the tank and the bad weather seemed to stay away so we headed down the N11 to Jack Whites and onto the coast road - Kia Motors - New Road - Ashford . 70 km in 3 hrs .Temp 3' .Wind 24 km/h Easterly.Straight back to the club house for a well earned coffee.
Well done to all.
