9 Southampton CTC riders, including  father and daughter on a tandem  enjoyed an early rain free ride to coffee at Lasham garden centre, where we met Winchester CTC.

After  plenty of cakes,  5 riders avoided all day in the rain and returned home. 4 riders were joined by a Winchester CTC ride.  They rode along  very quiet and wet lanes  via Alton, Binstead, Oakhanger to lunch at Liss.

With rain still falling,  the group rode a shortened route home via  Steep, East and  West Meon and Upham  back to Moorgreen. The total ride was  80+ miles.

Thanks for  the company.
