12 of us set off as I instructed my team that ‘everyone should be a back marker’, in a successful attempt not to lose any riders this time! We went to Headcorn via Wierton Hill (have I ever mentioned that it’s my favourite hill?) and along to East Sutton, Stickfast and Crumps to pick up a lovely long flat run into Headcorn. The biting cold wind made The Village Café very welcome. Our route back was delayed by a hail storm which we sat out in the café. So much weather in 31 miles and 1100 ft and all nicely under worked in anticipation for the SFA Sportive on Monday.
