A dull morning ,and a sparse turn out with only Russell,Bob,Ray and John W deciding to join Richard on a ride from Marden to Hartley. It was quite lumpy on the way out,going up Hush Heath Hill and Curtisen Green to Glassenbury .The route continued to Nineveh along fairly remote gravelly lanes,where unfortunately John W came off ,landing in thick mud,which covered him and his bike.In the circumstances it was decided to take an early break,at the Hartley Farm shop for him to clean up.With rain starting quite heavily,the return to Marden was very direct,to Goudhurst and up Winchet Hill to the village.A distance of only 26 miles at about 13 mph,and 487 metres ascents.
