Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
East again! Out through Charlton, then taking Route 44 to Lockinge and Betterton before "up over the hill" and down to Ardington (if weather and energy permit, we can do the Lockinge/Betterton loop a second time). Then return (up over another "small" hill) via Lains Barn.

Total of around 9 miles (or 13 with the extra loop)

Our leisurely and sociable 10-mile club rides are designed specifically with adult newcomers to cycling and youngsters in mind, or those who just want some relaxed and sociable exercise. We cover a distance of about 10 miles at a gentle pace of 8-10 mph, following quiet country lanes and the occasional easy off-road track. We stop regularly to catch our breath, to take in the views and anything that takes our interest along the way.

Weekly 1.5 hour rides at a riding pace of 18-20km/h (11-13mph). Not likely to be very hilly.

An anticlockwise route that takes us out towards Kingston Bagpuise and over the A420 to Longworth. Back via Pusey, Charney Basset and Denchworth.
A nice steady 2* on what I hope will be a fine evening c 18miles

Description:

Weekly 1.5 - 2 hours at a riding pace of 20-24km/h (13-15mph). May be hilly.

Tuesday Evening 4* Ride 4* Add to Calendar
Contact:
Phil Ward - 07789 691823
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:

Weekly 1.5 - 2 hours ride at a riding pace of 25-29km/h (16-18mph). May be hilly (this one isn't).

Given a predicted Northerly evening breeze, I'm thinking a Witney run might fit the bill? #LFF (long, flat & fast), choose your irons appropriately - the last iteration of this ride flushed out 3 fine steel machines and a single speed. ETA back at OMH ca. 20:40 judged on last year's pace, so well before sunset, but its still worth bringing a light set in case of "unforeseens"

The route might change if the forecasting is found wanting, so check back nearer the date please.

Description:

Weekly 1.5 hour rides at a riding pace of 18-20km/h (11-13mph). Not likely to be very hilly.

Optional social stop at The Fox at Denchworth at the end of the ride.

A favourite route to the east this time. We head down the cycle path to Wantage and then take the quiet tracks and lanes to Ginge and across to East Hendred. Featherbed Lane then leads to a lovely descent into Steventon. We will head back to the Hanneys and the pub at Denchworth or back to Grove.

There are a few sections on bike tracks but the surfaces are generally not too bad and should be suitable for all bikes (unless you've gone a bit crazy with the carbon bling).

18 miles with what feels like more downhill than uphill (I know that can't actually be right, but trust me on this...)

Start Location:

Description:
Regular off-road rides for 2018 we are toning these down and keeping them closer to Wantage.

Free parking at The Beacon, and meet at Wantage Market Place, by King Alfred.

The rides will be 15-20 miles, on quiet local tracks through the woods, and maybe up to the Ridgeway. Pace equivalent to 2*, best on a mountain bike, but a cyclocross bike and if dry a robust hybrid will be fine. Call/email Robin if you would like to know more.
