Cllr Phil North and his Dad

Cllr Phil North said, “A great – if not exhausting day – taking part in the Andover Cycling Festival. I entered the 50-mile sportive with my Dad again this year, which takes in some fantastic scenery (when I wasn’t cursing the hills) across, Hampshire, Wiltshire & the Berkshire border.Fantastic to finish off with a pint from Pete in The Town Mills and a calorie busting waffle from Kelly in Cantos. I’m pleased people are coming from quite long distances to attend. I spoke to entrants from Bristol and Gloucester today – and there were quite a lot of others spending money in the High Street afterwards.”
