Down Chain gang hill taking left track to A338 and into Wantage. I rode round it on Saturday 22nd and found it very dry with a ride time of 2hrs 40 mins. Tea stop at Sainsburys.

Report:
Geoff certainly organised a fine route and some fine weather to boot. Some good climbing onto the Ridgeway and then a little descent down to the road between the Ilsleys was followed by a fantastic climb up through a wooded tunnel. A few nettle stings later, we came out at Catmore, and then up to Farnborough for a descent in the meadow at "Scary Hill", which Sorrel found out wasn't so scary any more. Tea at Sorrel's ended a great ride!

Thanks Chris for that glowing report and I'm pleased that all riders enjoyed it.
