Saturday afternoon ride from Grove 2*
Glen Savegar
Start Time:
1:00 pm
Start Location:
Monthly 45-55km (30-40 miles) afternoon ride, with a tea stop, at a riding pace of 18-20km/h (11-13mph). Not likely to be very hilly. Might be a struggle for new or irregular riders in winter months.

UPDATE, Friday 2200 hrs- A change to original planned route due to roadworks/ road closures and resulting busy roads east of Wantage. A shorter distance ride in view of the not great weather forecast.

OMH, Denchworth, Goosey, Baulking, Uffington (optional loop to Woolstone), Kingston Lisle, Westcot, Sparsholt, Childrey, Letcombes, Wantage, OMH, with a choice of a tea stop near to end of ride at Letcombe Regis or Wantage.

Approx 35 kms (22 miles)

windy (fine)light rain showers
With the forecast wind and rain on the agenda, it wasn't looking too promising on paper, but 9 of us headed off regardless and made pretty good progress staying mostly dry, although the buffeting wind made for a bit of a concentrated effort to Uffington.

A short loop around the springline village of Woolstone and then back to Uffington and the "Forget me not" tearoom, open each Saturday in the village hall from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm, and a real find, offering everything from bacon baps, fresh baked bread, and the mandatory tea and cakes.

After a very pleasant and relaxing teastop it was back in the saddle with Fawler Hill to tackle and the sun now shining. Once clear of Kingston Lisle we were gradually rewarded for our efforts, with the tail wind starting to work in our favour. One more blustery push out of Childrey and an easy few kms zig zagging the Letcombes, saw us arrive back to OMH for a little before 5.00pm.

A warm welcome to Yvonne and Nicky on their first ride out with Wantage.

Thanks everyone! :-)
