Report:
A fantastic turn out of 17 riders what what was a very pleasant ride. Original plan, due to "nights drawing in" was to have the tea stop at the end. However, got word that the planned cafe closed at 3pm. Debate ensued, and was concluded that we stop at Q Gardens at Steventon (well, we did pass it en route!!). Always a nice place to stop. We were also forewarned of a potential necessary diversion near West Hanney (Mud ont' Road) but this was successfully negotiated after dutifully ignoring the "Road Closed" signs!

A nice leisurely pace, of course, enjoying the wonderful Autumn colours.

Thank you to everybody for a very enjoyable ride
