Tuesday Evening 3* Ride 3*
Leader:
Richard Pethybridge
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:

The longest day of the year deserves a decent ride to cap it off. Out through Denchworth to Stanford-in-the-Vale, and then across to Fernham. Down through Uffington before a climb up Dragon Hill to pass our signature White Horse. Back along the spring line road to Westcot, and then some back roads to Childrey. A sneaky bridle path (don't worry - it's tarmac!) cuts through to West Challow and then home via Denchworth again. 42.6k and 291m of climbing, most of which is one hill!

Weather:
white cloudblack low cloud
Report:
The rather grey weather didn't detract 15 enthusiastic riders from enjoying a tour of the Vale of the White Horse coupled with a trip up Dragon Hill to celebrate midsummer (delayed of course by a day because of the Leap Year). A relatively flat run through Denchworth, Stanford-in-the-Vale and Uffington culminated in the climb to the top. Well done in particular to Olivia for managing the ascent without stopping, a triumph of mind over matter. The return was via the spring line road (passing the 2* group heading in the opposite direction), and a sneaky cut-through from Childrey to West Challow before some enjoyed a Denchworth Dash en route to the finish. Honourable mention goes to Phil Stubbings, back on a 3* ride while still rehabilitating from a serious crash, and thanks go to Jon Townsin for sweeping so admirably.
Distance:
41.84 km (26.00 mi)
