"Three Rivers & a Canal" Audax

A journey back in time, as the “3 Rivers and a Canal” audax beginning in Theale at 7:30 was reinstated after a 25 year absence. Graham Haysom and Billy Weir took part in the ride: Graham had ridden the original event back in the early 80s whereas Billy would still have been in short trousers at school so this was his first crack at it! The route began west of Reading and headed out to Pewsey Wharf (see picture) via Lambourne, before heading to Old Sarum Airfield just outside Salisbury and returning to Theale via Popham Airfield near Kingsclere.
