Easy Saturday Afternoon Ride 1*
Leader:
Steve Boreham
Start Time:
2:00 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
A trip out East. Out via Denchworth, on to the Hanneys, before crossing Cow Common to Steventon. The small matter of Steventon Hill, with the reward at the top, namely refreshments at Q-Gardens.

Re-energised, we then proceed via Featherbed Lane, and up through East Hendred, track to Ginge, then on to Lockinge/Wantage then home.

Total distance of approximately 18 miles

Monthly 16-32km (10-20 miles) family and social afternoon rides, usually with a tea stop, at a riding pace of 13-16km/h (8-10mph). Occasional short or gentle climbs.
Report:
Glorious day!! Although it was a "select" group of a Magnificent Seven(!) Maybe the "Royal Wedding" effect, plus other things, that kept others away...

Very smooth, relaxed ride all round. All coped well with the "rat run" from East Hanney to Steventon - which linked the to "ends" of the ride together - namely the quieter roads to the Hanneys, and then - post tea stop - the picturesque route from East Hendred onwards.

A very welcome, fairly long tea stop at Q Gardens, with nobody in a rush. Nice to enjoy an outside "chill" in the warm weather!

It was noted, that the two hills on the ride were coped with efficiently, with Roger, on his 3-speed, 70 year old bike, who made it to the top first on both!!

Three broke off in Wantage (having earned their corn by cycling from Wantage to start with) leaving four of us to return to Grove.

Thanks all for a great ride in the sun!
Distance:
30.58 km (19.00 mi)
