Tess and Sikka led Angela, Richard (your humble reporter) and Chris (gilets jaunes tous) on the Polegate Circular, a splendid and particularly well- organised spin maximising the benefit from the few available daylight hours.

Long shadows were a feature of the ride as were high reeds in beds either side of the road, and I note the planning skill of the ride designers in terminating the ride just before sunset.
