After my stint with Croydon Radio yesterday it was starting to look like a pretty decent weekend, and that continued this morning with the West Kent RC Reliability Ride. A misty if mild morning, the Red Guard of the Old Portlians was there in force. With ten riders entered a minor miracle took place. We actually rode together as a group! Not the usual devil take the hindmost attitude.
It is mostly on good roads but with a couple of tough old climbs. It was Carters Hill, famous as the great leveller at the end of the Circuit of Kent that was looming large in our minds. With that out of the way we cracked onto the finish, getting there in around 3 hours for the 47 miles.
Exhilarating stuff. Great start to the 2013 season.
Thanks to the WKRC for putting on a cracking event once again.
