Just three of us took the long ride today, the rest going on the short ride to Long Ditton.
Anyway despite a pinch puncture near the Hamptons (my second issue of the day….I missed the all day Saturday ride due to a blown out valve earlier in the morning, on my way to Nonsuch), you come prepared and with second tube of the day inserted we made it to Wimbledon Mill cafe for a drink.
Random cyclist in a dutch velomobile who turms out to be in one of my other racing clubs. So I asked if I could try it! Tight clearances all round. But it does have a charge point for two mobile phones as it also has a decent on board 5v output battery for front and rear lights too. Aerodynamic and with huge luggage space at rear, quite pratical too.
Anyway, I didnt try a drive off!
So we returned to our own bikes for a smooth run back to Sutton as the dusk set in.
