Report:
Great ride! Great group! Great weather! All in all a great ride.

The route was varied with some nice little hills and some lovely views across the downs. We passed some spectatular bluebell woods.

At the bottom of Snake Pass (Marsh Benham) Bryan's bike got a bite which warranted a short stop to fix the puncture.

We finished the ride having riden 48 miles at an average pace of 14mph.
