Kevin led (?) riders over to Lambourn, were Sue took over. We then cycled over Hungerford Common to Inkpen, for lunch at the Swan PH, where Jan, Paul & Neil joined us - an excellent lunch was enjoyed by all.

The route then meandered back to Lambourn, for lashings of tea and home-made cakes at Lou & Mavis's, with a swim for those with energy to spare.

As the ride left to return over the Downs, Sue discovered she had a puncture, so the group were led back to Wantage by Lou, whilst Sue practised her patching skills...

Some started from Wantage, some started from Lambourne. Some stopped at Lambourne, and some turned up at the pub. One miserable sod rode back by himself.
The Swan at Inkpen is commended on its extreemly small portions, but very nice pint of mild. Just dont buy lime and soda at over
