2* Saturday Half Day Ride 2* Add to Calendar
Contact:
Jon Townsin - 07780 676051
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Half day ride (45-55km / 30-40 miles), with a tea stop, at a riding pace of 18-20km/h (11-13mph). Not likely to be very hilly. Might be a struggle for new or irregular riders in winter months.

We're off to Lambourn via The Letcombes and Hackpen Hill. No sooner we're down off the Ridgeway than we're heading back up a gentle climb, past Ashdown House and down Ashbury Hill.
We'll stop for refreshment at Ashbury village cafe before heading east along the spring line, as far as Compton Beauchamp.

From there it's a gentle amble across the vale and back via Denchworth.

A ride of just over 50 km at 2 star pace and we'll be stopping at the top of hills and Ashdown House.

Please let me know by text if you're planning to come so I can advise the cafe.

3* Fifth Saturday Special - Wiltshire Wander 3* Add to Calendar
Contact:
Nick Stokell - 07582 483315
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:
Shrivenham, Car Park off Marten's Road
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.

Free car park (but alas no toilets) at Shrivenham https://goo.gl/maps/dvnUCJnArPm

A wander West out of Oxfordshire and onto the quiet backroads of East Wiltshire ending up in Malmesbury for lunch. The return is in similar style, partially along the Wiltshire Cycleway, through Purton and back to the start via Highworth. This is a pretty flat ride with only three (I think) noteworthy climbs at Wroughton, Purton and Highworth - and one particular descent (Clyffe Pypard) where caution is needed. Possible early coffee stop at Chiseldon may be appreciated if it's a cold start!


I would be grateful if you could let me know if you intend to ride this one, but don't let that stop anyone turning up on the day!
