I was down to lead ‘brisk’ to Four Marks on the A31 west of Alton. I thought this was an ambitious destination and warned my wife I’d be home after 1pm. And I was right because we eventually pitched up at the 4th choice coffee stop.
We were a hardy group of 19, most of whom looked like they had had a very good Christmas and New Year.
The morning cold put a few people off, but eight of us enjoyed a very pleasant ride out to Thatcham, with frosted fields lit up in the weak winter sunshine.
