Ride Report 08/01/12 – Road Ride

Martin G, Alan J, Ant P, Simon Mac plus myself and several guest riders headed out from Parkend via Symonds Yat, Ross to Much Marcle where we had a coffee. At this point the group split with the quick boys going for a quick loop over to Malvern or somewhere. The rest enjoyed a route back via Dymock, Newent, Blaisdon and back to Parkend. Cracking days ride, 50+ miles by the end.
