Off-road Ride 2*
Leader:
Robin Tucker
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Off-roading in the dark is an experience you must try for your cycling life to be complete! Knobbly tyres and lights required.

About 15 miles up to the Ridgeway and back down again. Sometimes, by agreement on the night, we might go a bit further.

Bright lights are required for off-road riding in the dark, and a rear light for getting home. I have 2 spare ones that I can lend so you can see if you like it before buying your own. Contact me so I know to bring them.

Dark, cold and wet – we'll ride in any two. But please let me know if you are coming so I can tell you if I decide to cancel due to really bad weather.
Report:
This looked like it might be the last dry ride for a while.

We went up to the Ridgeway and down the back (Ice Valley). Then swung sharp left and up the track to the Ridgeway above Betterton. Over to the Ginge descent.

By this time it was getting dark, so the lights came out. David T's came off on the way down and he had to back track a bit. But it was a nice run down all told.

We returned via Roundabout hill, as we haven't done that for a while. By then, John's light had cut out - later diagnosed as not having charged it since the last ride. So others rode alongside or in front to share their photons.
Distance:
25.75 km (16.00 mi)
