Tuesday Evening 3* Ride 3*
Katherine Boyce
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:

Weekly 1.5 - 2 hours at a riding pace of 20-24km/h (13-15mph). May be hilly.

At this point in the season, a jaunt into the hilly Downs should be a doddle :O. Please don't remind me of my words as I struggle up the hills!

Coinstrained by all the roadworks around Wantage and Grove, straight into Wantage and up to Brightwalton on the A338, then over to West Ilsley, back to Farnborough and then the glorious swoop down Chain Hill and back to Grove.

The nights are starting to draw in, so please make sure you bring lights.

A lovely rolling ride tonight. Despite there being a wide range of abilities and a great deal of climbing, the ride kept together really well :)

James managed to get up Manor Hill and the climb to Brightwalton despite a puncture and its reappearance. He decided that having to change his mountain bike tube would cause too much of a delay to the rest of us so chose to sort it out on his own and make his own way back. The rest of us carried on up and down, enjoying the wonderful views. And so we came to the top of Chain Hill and the glorious swoop down to Wantage.

Nick very kindly agreed to lead those returning to Grove, whilst the leader snuck off for an early shower ;) Many thanks to Dave T and Jane for sweeping and to all of you for a really enjoyable, convivial evenings riding.
