Tuesday evening 1* Ride 1*
Leader:
Steve Boreham
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Belated details of ride tonight: "Loopy" - Ride out to Goosey, via Asti Stud, then curl back via the Charney Road to West Hanney, then up the smoothest road in the county, before looping round to Lyford, and back via Denchworth.

Total of around 14 miles, with the sun shining!

Our leisurely and sociable 10-mile club rides are designed specifically with adult newcomers to cycling and youngsters in mind, or those who just want some relaxed and sociable exercise. We cover a distance of about 10 miles at a gentle pace of 8-10 mph, following quiet country lanes and the occasional easy off-road track. We stop regularly to catch our breath, to take in the views and anything that takes our interest along the way.

Report:
Fairly small group on what was a glorious evening for cycling. The temperature had eased off nicely so it was very pleasant in the evening sunshine.

A warm welcome to Jan's brother Paul on his first ride with us, a sterling effort!

Plenty of time for pauses to enjoy the scenery, and villages of Goosey, West Hanney and Lyford (and of course Denchworth!) Plus, enjoyment of some very smooth roads in the latter part of the ride (ie "pre pot-hole" roads)

The original estimate of 12 miles was picked up on (does the leader not get away with anything?) as it turned out to be 14 miles (the leader suspected it would - honest!)

Clouds had gathered early on but no rain - but we played "spot the green grass" with a little success....

Thanks to all for making the ride relaxed, and thanks to Martyn for sweeping.
Distance:
22.53 km (14.00 mi)
