A good turn out again on a dull but windless day. Our route took us through the centre of Southampton on cycle tracks and then over the Itchen Bridge. We kept close to the coast through Victoria Country Park where people were enjoying the last days of the school holidays. A well deserved coffee was taken by the river in Hamble.  We used the ferry to cross the river. Two trips were necessary but the ferryman said that he had taken up to 12 bikes! We wended our way back through Sarisbury Green, Manor Farm Country Park and through the West End and back through Swaythling up to Chilworth.

A big thank you to James for taking us on this ride which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. A lot of time and organisation had gone into the day at it was greatly appreciated.
