Tuesday Evening 2* 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.

A very straightforward classic loop through the Vale to kick off the Tuesday 2* season. Out to Denchworth, along to West Hanney then up what may be the smoothest road in Oxfordshire to Southmoor. A nice gentle glide back down to Charney Bassett, Denchworth again and home.

No hills at all (unless you count the Denchworth railway bridge, which we don't).

16 miles, so should get us back just around sunset. But - lights are essential!
Report:
Wow - what a great group and what a lot of people! Clearly, everyone was excited by a rare pleasant evening after a truly terrible Bank Holiday weekend. There was still a fair bit of standing water around the place and an unpleasant amount of potholes, but it was a very nice evening and we had a great ride.

Emma's friend Lorna decided she wasn't feeling too good and left us at Dechworth, but the rest of the group stayed together really well and dealt with a somewhat nagging wind with no problem at all.

Clare's brother James also joined us.

Thanks to all for a great evening!
Distance:
25.75 km (16.00 mi)
