Wow! Must have been the desire to work off the Christmas excesses which resulted in a record of 13 riders – John, Peter, Graham, Maggie, Sandra, Barrie, Jenny and Dave, Julia and Tom, Tom V., David and Ian. A further 3 (Fireman Bob, Cameron and Ewe?) very unfortunately never joined the main group because of a puncture before the start and a change of venue to Priory Farm because the Redhill aerodrome café was found to be closed on arrival. Well done Meike for saving the day with this suggestion! A very showery ride out via Outwood but a sunny return via Merstham.
