So a New Years Cycling starts,and 10 turned up at Paddock Wood for a joint group ride. Lorna should have led,but tested positive for COVID shortly before, so Richard V led instead, basically using Lorna’s GPS route. A fine mild day and a nice flat country ride out to Headcorn,stopping at Costa coffee,which was the only place open. With a bit of warmth in the sun,the return continued to be uneventful,thankfully with the traffic remaining light.No incidents or punctures,so all good. A distance of 33 miles at a very modest 12 mph average.
