Undeterred by the weather forecast Paul Kelly led Rob Starey, Mick Ayliffe, Trevor Hughes, Bob Green and guests Keith and Janice from the KPs on a MTB ride. Nonsuch Park, Hogsmill to Kingston, Bushey Park, Teddington, Thames Path to Richmond for coffee under threatening skies, Isleworth, Syon Park, Kew, Barnes, Chiswick and Hammersmith for shelter from the rain in a lovely old pub. A few pints later out into the deluge to splash back through Castlenau, Roehampton, Wimbledon Common and back to Paul’s place in Merton Park by 2 o’clock for the club Barbecue. Joined by Caroline & Barry, Malcolm & Evie, Andrew & Mary, Christina, Brian Harris Emma, Bob & Elvira, Billy & a tarted-up Rob Starey and several CTC’ers. Very many thanks to Paul and Vicky for their hospitality and an excellent spread with a bit of warm sunshine at the end of a very good day.
