Tuesday 2* Evening Ride 2*
Leader:
John Tranter
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Weekly 1.5 hour rides at a riding pace of 18-20km/h (11-13mph). Not likely to be very hilly.

Heading east for a change tonight. Out of Grove to the Lains Barn road and then swooping down into Ginge to experience the slightly strange set of (in my view) slightly over-perfect little villages nestling under the Ridgeway. We go along to the permissive track cutting through to the road above East Hendred, then a few yards on the A417 before cutting through Featherbed Lane to the great descent of Steventon Hill. Then the Cow Common road back across to the Hanney's and home.

About 20 miles at an appropriately mellow 2* pace.
Report:
A slightly steamy humid evening with a threat of thunderstorms, but all was well. A great group coped well, despite some unpleasant motorists on the Lains Barn road.

It was remarkably easy bowling along, and the ride was despatched very efficiently.

Thanks to all for coming!
Distance:
30.58 km (19.00 mi)
