From here we'll double back past Harwell campus and Rowstock, and back to The Hendreds via Featherbed Lane. We'll then take a detour through Ginge and Lockinge, before returning to Grove via Lains Barn. 27.6 miles in all.

Weather:
sunny
Report:
The weather was perfect, and the daylight ideal for a longer ride tonight. A compact group of seven riders made light work of it. As the ride leader constantly checked the GPS to make sure we weren't breaching the 3* brief, there were no complaints. Even the waits at the top of hills were short, as the group stayed together comfortably. We eased off for a bit of socialising on the gentle climb to Ginge, bringing the average pace down to a legitimate 14.2mph. Welcome to Jason, on his first ride with the club, having discovered us by our shirts on a recent ride. Thanks to Ursula for sweeping a very tidy group.
Distance:
45.00 km (27.96 mi)
