I've been sent a souvenir programme of the 1932 South of England Cyclists' rally organised by Portsmouth CTC (then the Portsmouth District Association) and the Portsmouth Centre of the National Association of Cycle and Motor Cycle Traders. It's a fascinating piece of history.
Portsmouth DA put up a prize of a years' CTC membership to "the cyclist not already in a cycling club, making what the Committee considers to be the most meritorious ride to the Rally".
"Our Message" on page 5 applies equally well today as it did in 1932!
Our thanks to Gwelda Swindells who found the programme while going through the belongings of a deceased relative and who took the trouble to get in touch and send it on to us.
