Farnham Group Ride ~ 2 June 2013

The Farnham group enjoyed a gentle seaside ride from the outskirts of Chichester via bye-roads, lanes, fields and off-road paths to Bosham. Arthur writes: The Farnham easy riders also enjoyed the South Coast last week end under our illustrious leader from Haslemere – the same who also lead the underwater Farnham ride around Bosham harbour two years ago! This year’s ride included a wide range of activities from road riding to cyclo cross, off road riding and even maritime activities. Do check out the notice boards beside some of the tracks!
