Family and social afternoon ride (16-32km / 10-20 miles), usually with a tea stop, at a riding pace of 13-16km/h (8-10mph). Occasional short or gentle climbs.

A nice gentle amble around the Vale. Out to Denchworth, Charney Bassett and back across to Goosey. Then a very gentle climb to Childrey followed by some good off-road tracks back through Challow to Wantage. Optional tea stop in Wantage depending on weather and how everyone is feeling by then.

Regular Wantage Ride 3* Add to Calendar
Contact:
Jon Townsin - 07780 676051
Start Time:
10:00 am
Start Location:
Wantage Market Place
Description:

All-day touring ride (80-100km / 50-65 miles), lunch and possibly tea stop en route, at a riding pace of 18-22km/h (11-14mph). Not suitable for irregular riders. Climbing almost inevitable.

Change to advertised route and start time.

Following a search for the missing roads of Marlborough yesterday (!) this revised route takes us through Lambourn, Ramsbury and Aldbourne before heading back over Fox Hill to Ashbury and Uffington before heading back to Wantage. A lunch / coffee stop at The Crown in Aldbourne should provide enough sustenance for the ride.


A ride of 76km and 750m of ascent should get us back mid afternoon but please make sure you bring lights JIC.
