Tuesday 2* Evening Ride 2*
Leader:
John Tranter
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
This is a bridging ride at the upper level of the range to allow riders to gauge their pace and gain confidence to step up to the next star level.

The final 2* ride of the Tuesday evening summer series. Where to go? White Horse Hill was of course tempting, but I have decided to be kind and go for the classic ride up Hackpen Hill, down the other side and back via Nine Barrows to the great descent of Blowingstone Hill, Kingston Lisle and back through the Vale.

24 miles / 38km at our usual pace of 12-13 mph / 19-21 kph.
Report:
A good group and an optimistic route planned. All went well to start with, and Holborn and Hackpen Hills were dealt with quite swiftly. Sadly, as we headed over the Ridgeway and towards Lambourn the heavens opened and we had some pretty serious rain and cross winds to deal with on a very exposed road. Karl had gone on ahead, but we took a group decision to turn back towards lower and safer roads. We dropped down to Sparsholt and then worked our way to Denchworth and home. It was good to see Karl waiting for us at Millbrook, having also turned back on a different routing.

Bedraggled, damp but happy - I think this sums it up!

It was a great group and summed up the really good team spirit we have seen on the Tuesday 2* rides all season. Thanks to all for making it such fun.
Distance:
