Eastleigh Civic Day – 11th March

The day commenced at the Pavilion on the Park Eastleigh where we had the opportunity to ride on the Cycles4All Bicycles which was certainly an experience. I sat on a tandem on the front giving me no control over steering or braking and I was reliant on the person behind me who had never ridden one before either. We managed to get to our destination and with great difficulty dismounted. After this we were taken to Southampton/Eastleigh airport where we were given a talk on the development of the airport over the years followed immediately by an incredible experience of being driven in a coach down the runway! After an excellent trip to Eastleigh College for an extremely good lunch well served by the students we went to the Ageas Bowl. Unfortunately I was unable to walk around it but it is quite an exceptional site despite, by this time, horrible weather.   An extremely interesting, fact finding day.
