Saturday 9 March 2018
The weather people said we would have a wet morning and sorry to say they were right. Jill Halton, Charlie Porter, Dave Matten, Paul Nicholson and Ron Cheeseman had all cycled from home to Wincanton Morrison’s and in consequence were somewhat damp but all joined me for the ride to Rose’s cafe. We climbed up to the Racecourse, passed both churches in the small parish of Charlton Musgrove, passed where the lady who is allergic to the 20th (and 21st) century lives in a hut in a field, through Shepton Montague and Woolston to our lunch at South Cadbury. Norman Hodghton had ridden from home and was having his lunch when we arrived at 12.20 hours.
After lunch the rain had ceased but as we were all damp we went directly home, some of us to see the rugby on TV.
