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.

Heading out via Wantage for a change this week. We pass through the two Letcombes (Regis and Bassett) before one very minor hill sets us up for a nice descent into Childrey. Then along the lanes through Sparsholt and Westcot to Kingston Lisle. A nice descent to Uffington, and then back home on the flat roads via Goosey and Denchworth.

19 miles.
Report:
A bit breezy and a bit chilly, but clearly not a problem as the (equal) biggest Tuesday 2* group so far this year assembled at Old Mill Hall. Great to welcome Natalie on her first ride with us, and Julie on her second.

We managed to navigate the mean (and potholed) streets of Wantage without incident and soon found ourselves on the quiet lanes through the Letcombes. The little climb of Holborn Hill didn't seem to worry anyone overmuch and we certainly enjoyed the big descent to Childrey, followed fairly soon by the swoop down Fawler Hill to Uffington. After that it got really nice as the previously nagging wind became a nifty tailwind and we bowled along very happily back through Baulking and Goosey to Denchworth and home.

Thanks to all for being a great group!
