Our ride this morning was to Harlington and The Poplars Garden Centre. Six riders arrived for our 10:30 set off from the Broadway Fountain, Kris, Kevin, Alan, Jack, myself and Mia who took the lead. We took the direct route both there and back missing the hill on the Harlington Road on the outward journey. Adrian met us at Pirton and Geoff P was waiting for us on our arrival the Poplars. Lunch was enjoyable with the food above average for a Garden Centre, as is usual at the venue. We had a little rain on our return journey between Pirton and Holwell. The round trip was about 35 miles and our average was about 13 mph. Stuart Collins.
