Tuesday 4* Evening Ride 4*
Leader:
Richard Kembleton
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Weekly 1.5-2 hours ride at a riding pace of 25-29km/h (16-18mph). May be hilly.

Taking a break from the (bigger) hills we'll head out through Denchworth to pass north of Stanford-in-the-Vale and then turn south-west to Shrivenham. A bit of a slog up through Bishopstone puts us on the rolling spring-line road, past the White Horse (optional detour!) and back towards Wantage, with a final jink back to Grove through Challow and Denchworth to avoid the bad roads in the centre of Wantage.

55km, target time 2 hours; please bring lights.
Riders:
Adrian West
Charlotte Ward
Frank Schroer
Jason Jones
Paul Jarvis
Peter Cowan

Weather:
light rain showerssunny intervals
Report:
A reasonably-sized group, with one tandem, set out in light rain which soon cleared up, and set a decent pace out through Denchworth. For once, Frank was there from the start. It was all nice and conversational until we hit the spring line and started to climb up to Bishopstone. Adrian left us at Ashbury, having already done half the ride to get to Grove in the first place. A cheeky Dragon Hill with a fine sunset led to Jason puncturing on the final cattle grid, stymying his chance at the Dash. Paul volunteered to make his own way home soon after, and Phil and Charlotte's tandem left in Denchworth. Peter, Frank, and Rich made it to the Dash but since I still don't know where it officially ends I can't name the winner...

Thanks to everyone for coming. This was my first attempt at taking photos on the bike. More practice needed...
