Saturday Half Day Ride 2*
Leader:
David Bridge
Start Time:
10:30 am
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Flattish ride in the Vale of the White Horse round and avoiding Didcot via some of the smaller villages. Lunch stop at the Fleur-de-Lys pub East Hagbourne. Return trip uses the path from Harwell and we will use a short bit of the old railway track near Hagbourne the so be prepared for a bit of off road.

The menu at the Fleur de Lys can be found at https://www.thefleurdelyspub.co.uk/mobile/menus-detail.asp?id=7
The ride should finish well before sunset but it is always a good idea to bring lights at this time of year.

NOTE START TIME IS 10:30hrs
Report:
Started off with 10 riders but got as far as Drayton by which time it was becoming clear that one of our number was having problems with 2* pace at least partly due to using a heavy mountain bike with knobbly tyres.

We decided to split into a slower group and a faster group. The faster group arrived at the Fleur de Lys pub about 10 minutes before the slower group. By that time though the guy on the mountain bike had found he wasn't keeping up with the slower group either and gone back to Grove with Des.

After a good lunch at the Fleur de Lys we headed back via Chilton and Harwell. The path from Harwell was quite slippery but everyone made it safely.
Distance:
54.72 km (34.00 mi)
