Tuesday Evening 3* Ride 3*
Leader:
Nick Dunton
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Weekly 1.5 - 2 hours at a riding pace of 20-24km/h (13-15mph). May be hilly.

This ride will be at the HIGH end of the grade but still within it.

Probable change of plan. As John might not be able to get there in time Nick has agreed to be leader if he doesn't. His route will most likely go up Blowingstone Hill at some point...
Riders:
Allen Stacey
Andy Pixton
Antony Cockerill
Karen Froud
Katherine Boyce
Mike Cooke
Nick Dunton
Phil Stubbings
Riders = 8

Weather:
sunny intervals
Report:
A last-minute change of leader as John Talbot was delayed. Hence we took a different route to the one advertised: out through Denchworth, Goosey and Baulking to Uffington, over Blowingstone and back via Hackpen, the Letcombes, and Wantage. A well-matched group meant we made steady progress, with the obligatory breathers at the top of the hills. My Strava says an average speed of 23.8 kph. On the other hand, it says my maximum speed was 138.2 kph! Well, it did say this should be at the high end of 3* pace. We were plagued by the wind, yet again, this time a nor-easterly which made ascending Hackpen from Lambourne a trial of strength and the following descent a little wobbly.
Distance:
39.20 km (24.36 mi)
