A very good turnout at Palmerston Square. The weather forecast had been poor but everyone was keen to get going to get some miles into their legs. The route led us up the Test Valley through Broughton and onto the Wallops were coffee was taken at the Airfield. The sun had come out by then and the early chill had gone. We were unable to go via Grateley because some dangerous material had closed the road but we were happy to take the easier road to Weyhill via Monxton. A good lunch was enjoyed by everyone at the Weyhill Fair. They cannot be faulted there.

The return route was through Abbots Ann and everyone managed it over the hill just before Leckford.

Thanks everyone for your company and perhaps there was just a hint of warmer days ahead.
