Regular Wantage Ride 3*
Leader:
Jenny Gower
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:
Wantage Market Place
Description:

All-day touring ride (80-100km / 50-65 miles), lunch and possibly tea stop en route, at a riding pace of 18-22km/h (11-14mph). Not suitable for irregular riders. Climbing almost inevitable.

This is a hilly ride, but is slightly shorter than normal - so hopefully the two will cancel each other out. From the market place we head out on the usual route through the Letcombes and up Hackpen Hill, then down into Lambourn and along to Eastbury, up the Shute and down into Hungerford. Then along to Inkpen and up the hill towards Combe. Down again, and then at Netherton back up to Faccombe. We head back down into the Kennet Valley for lunch at the Yew Tree Garden Centre, then the afternoon is slightly less hilly. Through Hampstead Marshall, Marsh Benham, across the A4 and down to Boxford, through Brightwalton, Catmore, West Ilsley and the final pull up to Farnborough, then all we have to do is free wheel back to Wantage. I'm not planning on going fast and will be regrouping (and gasping) at the top of the hills.
