3* Saturday Half Day Ride 3*
Leader:
Jo Little
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Half day ride (60-70km / 38-45 miles), with a tea stop, riding pace of 20-24km/h (13-15mph). Likely to visit distant destinations. Not suitable for irregular riders. Climbing likely.

This ride is deferred from 2nd February - which was cancelled because of deep snow. Hopefully we'll have better cycling conditions this time.

This ride will pass through Denchworth and Charney Bassett, then across the A420, down Buckland Hill and through Bampton. It will skirt round Lechlade and go through Coleshill then back across the A420 to Fernham and Uffington. We'll then go along the spring line to Wantage for a cafe stop at either The Bay Tree or Costa, if people wish. The first three quarters of the ride is flat, with all the climbing concentrated in the last 10 miles. The ride is just under 40 miles and we should be in Wantage by 1pm.
Please note this ride will finish at Wantage.
Report:
A good group of people collected for the ride today. The sun came out towards the end of the ride, though the headwind was hard work at times. Thank you to Jerry and Phil who provided a wind break for me in the tough parts!
The countryside looked beautiful as we passed through some lovely villages. Some of the roads had lots of potholes and were in a bad state of repair, which led to one puncture that was quickly dealt with. The hills took a bit of effort at the end of the ride, but everyone managed them ok.
Happy Birthday to Barry.
Thank you to Eddie for sweeping.
Distance:
64.00 km (39.77 mi)
