Great turnout of riders at Chilworth, with 17 out after a further pickup from The Hunters Inn. We split into two groups, the faster with Marcus and the remaining riders with Jim. We took the Braishfield route to Kings Somborne, where we continued through Broughton,The Wallops, Grately, arriving at The Hawk Conservancy just 10 mins behind Marcus’s group. After an Excellent Brunch, we returned down a more direct route over some hills then down the Test Valley. The weather was warm and the sun did eventually come out as we neared Romsey, a lovely day out and enjoyed by all.
