There was an amazing turn-out of people, especially considering it was a nasty damp, if mild, Sunday. Personally it’s the kind of weather I like, although a light drizzle is about all I want to have to deal with; on this occasion, the drizzle became rain and then stopped, only to start again a few minutes later and so it went on – never the same for more than a couple of minutes, so it was eminently easy to put up with. However, it was all made up for by the ride being along familiar, but beautiful lanes, between Godalming and Chiddingfold, where we enjoyed our coffee and cakes.

Merry Christmas, the Wayfarers!
