Saturday Afternoon Ride from Grove 2*
Leader:
John Tranter
Start Time:
1:00 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:

A nice route through the north Vale and down into the upper Thames valley. There is a really nice quiet, rarely used road from Hatford via the A420 to Littleworth which suddenly has a dramatic descent into the river valley to the north of Faringdon. A tea stop at Aston Pottery, followed by the day's one little climb back up from Tadpole Bridge to Buckland. Then easy roads back to Grove. 40 miles, with plenty of options for short cuts depending on the weather and how we are doing.
Report:
A great group gathered - very impressive considering it was a cold and fairly damp autumn day.

We made good time across the north Vale and down into the Thames valley. it then didn't seem too long before the comfort (and warmth) of Aston Pottery, although it was a bit traumatic having to fight through all the glittery Christmas decorations in the Pottery to get to the cafe!

The climb of Buckland Hill didn't seem to present any problems and, apart from a handful of riders who had to get back early, we scorned the short cut options to do the full ride. Back in Grove at 5pm.

Thanks to all for your company and a really nice ride.
