A shot from last Saturday's walk. Traditionally, the "Gang of Five" from the Boys' Bike Weekend would usually head down to Dorset for an "end of season" ride around the Purbeck Hills. With Steve no longer able to ride now due to a back probelm. we have considered a day when the bikers would ride and the walkers would walk and we would meet up for lunch. However, we decided instead to all go walking for the day and David came up with the idea of a walk around the isle of Purbeck.
This was immediately after the lunch stop at the Lobster Pot Cafe at Portland Bill. The westerley winds had been building all morning but we had been failry well sheltered on the eastern side of the island. However, as soon as we left the cafe and started to head up the western side of the isalnd, we were buffeted by very strong windows and frequent heavy rain showers. I can't recall been blown uphill before. Goping downhill was difficult, too, as aklthough you though knew where you were going to place your foot, the wind had other ideas. Steve and Gordon were both blown off their feet. Good fun, though!
