Around 14 riders set off from Chilworth on a bright and breezy morning.
We headed down through Chandlers Ford and Hursley, braving the Saturday morning traffic and eventually turned off the busy roads to go through Sparsholt to Crawley where we stopped briefly to look at the ducks at the pond. From there we cycled on through Leckford and Longstock to the Waitrose Farm Shop Café. Despite the café being predictably busy on such a lovely day everyone had a good lunch before heading back along the familiar route past Stockbridge, Houghton, Broughton, Mottisfont and Timsbury to the bottom of Yokesford Hill where we took our different routes home.
Thank you to Simon for planning the route and leading and to Paul and Kevin our gallant back markers.
