Daytime 1* Thursday Ride 1*
Leader:
Lorna Swanton
Start Time:
10:30 am
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Social rides up to 24km (15 miles), usually with a cafe stop, at a riding pace of 13-16km/h (8-10mph). Please check website on the morning of the ride if the weather is poor as it may be cancelled or the start time changed.

This week we'll be heading eastwards through Charlton, Lockinge, Ginge and East Hendred to a refreshment stop at the Farmhouse Bakery and Café in Steventon. Back across Cow Common, the Hanneys and Denchworth. A round trip of about 20 miles. Some gentle climbing along the Sustrans route to Ginge followed by the roughish farm track, then some nice descents.
Report:
A lovely morning for a ride. We took the cycle track to Wantage, cut through the estate to Charlton Road and on to the track to Lockinge, up past Betterton, where the rhino hadn't moved since the last time we saw it, rested and admired the view before dropping down to Ginge and up across the farm track. After the fine descent into East Hendred, the advance party of people needing to get back for appointments or wanting a full breakfast went on to the Farmhouse Bakery and Cafe, followed by two other groups along busy Featherbed Lane and through the roadworks in Steventon.

After a slog into the wind across Cow Common, some of us needed a good rest at East Hanney, despite the looming black rainclouds. Fortunately the rain bypassed us, all but a few spots, and we made it back to Grove dry.

Thanks to all for your company.
Distance:
