10-mile Club Evening Rides Restart 1* Add to Calendar
Contact:
Steve Swanton - 01235 764257
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Our weekly programme of Tuesday evening easy rides restarts this week with a out-and-back ride to the village of Goosey in the heart of the Vale with its large village green, small white-washed church and a fine view towards the Ridgeway. A relatively flat route through Denchworth of about 8 miles. It can be cold in the lanes in April so please wrap up warm.

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.

The ride will return to and finish in Grove for those who need to get home. However, all are welcome to stop at The Fox in Denchworth for a sociable drink with members on the other evening rides on the way back. Lights will be needed for your ride home from the pub.
Sunset: 8:17pm   Twilight Ends: 8:54pm
