I suggested that I'll write the report of the local ride for the next week however I was told not to be cheeky as they knew I won't be attending it. I'll be riding at Loire Valley in France.
We did only 25km with 16 participants riding on our usual route ups and downs with a lot of sand but not further than Telmond to survive the summer heat. Luckily the sun was mainly hiding behind clouds so it was bearable. For some of us it was more walking than riding. I must confess since I have the new bike and thanks to Michal's advice I managed to ride through most of the sand patches. I still have much to learn, but I have plenty of time to catch up. Only 10 of us ended up at Landwer's for refreshment /breakfast.
To sum it up, it was a pleasant ride with the usual good company.
