Recovering of Winchester

Hi All.
My legs are just about recovered fro the very wet, windy and hilly Isle of Wight Randonee.
My first experience of this obviously popular ride was very positive, (even if the best bit was having a hot soak in the bath at my parents house in Lymington)!
The section from Bembridge to Niton was pretty evil with heavy rain and strong winds but made bearable by the good natured encouragement of others on the road.
A bout of cramp brought on by the cooling effects of the rain and wind forced me to walk up one of the hills near Freshwater. Still at least I have a target to beat next year - not getting off!
Regards Nick

What? You stopped half way round for a hot bath? Top style points to you.

Brilliant idea and I think lots of people would have taken up that option, however Lymington is on the mainland so only an option once the ride was complete.
