Tuesday Evening 3* Ride 3*
Leader:
David Smith
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:

Out to East Ilsley via Manor Road and Brightwalton. Back via Farnborough and down Chain Hill.
Hilly. Very wet last time!
Report:
A very good turnout on a lovely evening saw 19 3* riders set off from Old Mill Hall, soon down to 18 as there was a major tyre blowout and a retiree. We made good progress to the foot of Manor Road where the fun begins and the flat roads ended. We climbed, descended and rolled our way through Brightwalton, Peasemore, Stanmore, East & West Ilsley and Farnborough. The final descent of Chain Hill, first time down for a few of us :) was excellent fun. Several people headed off home in various directions from the bottom of Chain Hill, while the rest of the group made its way through the market place and back to Grove.

Thanks for coming along and making it a great ride to lead and many thanks to Jon Townsin for going the extra mile (probably literally) in his role as sweep. ;)
Distance:
45.10 km (28.02 mi)
