2* Saturday Half Day Ride 2*
Leader:
Jo Little
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.

This ride will cross the A420 at Southmoor and then go out towards Bablock Hythe and Hardwick, before a cafe stop at Aston Pottery. Then the short climb up Buckland Hill and back the normal route to Grove. This is a slightly longer ride than normal for this time of year, but can be shortened if necessary.

UPDATE: Since riding the route yesterday I have decided it is too long. I have therefore cut out most of the Standlake part. This brings the ride down to a more manageable 50.9 km (30 miles).
Report:
A large group gathered today for the first 2* ride of the New Year. The weather was cloudy and threatened to rain from time to time, but luckily it held off.
An early mechanical for Steph was quickly sorted out by Karl, our mobile mechanic! Thank you for that.
As there were so many of us we split into two groups, but managed to meet up at Aston Pottery for a cafe break.
Thank you to John T for leading the second group and to Roger, Des and Karl for sweeping. Thank you also to John T and Steve S for following my intentions, rather than the downloaded route.
It was very good to have Barry on the ride and climbing his first hill for 13 months!
Thank you to everyone for a very enjoyable ride.
Distance:
51.34 km (31.90 mi)
