Tuesday Evening Off-road Ride 2*

David Yearley

Description:
Off-road ride around local tracks, usually about 15 miles. Knobbly tyres and good lights required. We are keen to welcome new riders and have spare lights available to borrow if you let me know. Dark, cold and wet - we'll ride in any 2. But please let me know if you are coming so I can tell you if I decide to cancel due to really bad weather. Optional stop at The Fox in Denchworth at the end of the ride.

Report:
This was a fairly straightforward ride tonight.

From Old Mill Hall we travelled up Crab Hill to Wantage, and then to Lockinge and up Goddards Brook to the point to point course. From there we split into two teams: Richard and Dave Y took the Bitham road to the Ridgeway, and Dave B, John and Alex took the Jolly Green Giant hill up to the top. It turns out that, whilst the Jolly Green Giant is steeper, it is also quicker!

From there we headed westwards, crossing the B4494 and A338 before continuing along the Ridgeway. We dropped down into Letcombe Basset via Smith's Hill, and from there to Letcombe Regis, Windmill Hill and down into Challow, all the time heading for The Fox at Denchworth, where we enjoyed a pint or two.

Welcome back to John, after a fallow winter! And welcome back to Alex after completing his degree.

CTC Wantage Rule 29A(b)(iii) was complied with as we had 40% of the riders named Dave.
Distance:
25.00 km (15.53 mi)
