Despite earlier forecasts of snow and/or gale force winds, the weather was OK, and seven of us left the Market Place, and took the direct route to Lambourn, where Diane and Eve left us, and Pat, Mavis and Sue joined, we continued over to Ramsbury, and through Axford and Mildenhall to The Bear at Marlborough, where Kev and Wen joined us for lunch (Good portions, reasonable prices). After a brief stretch of A4, we took the lanes, and crossed back over the river to Axford, and took the hilly route back through Aldbourne, and onto Baydon, where Des having pumped up his back tyre, realised he also had a puncture in the front!, as Des and Derek were about to leave the group to take a direct route home, we wished them a merry Christmas, and left them repairing the puncture. We continued to Lambourn, where Pat, Sue and Mavis departed. The remaining three, continued back to Wantage, arriving just before the rain started, having completed 71km and 965m of ascent
