WMW Ride to Walbury Hill ~ 19 October 2016

This was a great ride, planned by Phil, which started and finished at Micheldever. It was great to cycle outside of our usual area, particularly when the route was so good….. and so quiet! There was very little traffic and what a pleasure that was! Below are some photos including one in the churchyard of St Peter’s parish church in St Mary Bourne; we stopped there for a moment to focus our thoughts for a few moments on Ron Richardson, whose funeral was today.

We were a large group of 18 people for some of the ride. A couple of our number got stuck for well over an hour in a jam on the M3, following an accident, on their way to the start of the ride, so they didn’t join us till later on the ride. Other than that, the day went smoothly enough and in fine cycling conditions. The pub wasn’t bad either.

    What a lovely record of yesterdays ride with great photographs showing beautiful skies and interesting lights and shadows. I don’t know how you manage take such good photos whilst riding your bike!
    Thanks also to our group who are such a pleasure to lead and I hope we can do this ride again next summer and particularly for those who were unable to ride as they were attending Ron’s funeral.
