We are in PORTSMOUTH!
An early start , in bright and very cold conditions , what a beautiful route through Hampshire through "chocolate box" villages . Definitely hillier than 'map my ride' suggested !
Highlight of the day was the "coincidence" that we had to pass one of the U.K. Leading XK garages at Clandon. So I popped in to say hello!
Great ride into Portsmouth apart from the bike route being repaired so we had to bike across a cricket pitch - what we do for charity!
Sad farewell to Ian Burnette who has come from Easton.
Graham and Di Smith, you two are the "spirt" of this event; two non cyclists who have come from Easton to Portsmouth . We had to board the ferry before meeting you here , I hope you got here OK and are not still lost in the Hills of Hampshire...?
