Easy Saturday Afternoon Ride From Standlake 1*
Leader:
Nick Portsmouth
Start Time:
2:00 pm
Start Location:
Standlake Village Hall, OX29 7SB
Description:
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.

UPDATE 12/08/18 - NEW START TIME OF 2.00pm

UPDATE 14/08/18 - The A415 as you go into Kingston Bagpuize is closed until October 1st. If approaching from Grove/Wantage, you can go up the Hanney Road into Southmoor and then through to Kingston Bagpuize and across the A420 and on to Standlake.

This month an awayday 1* ride to the Thames Valley starting from the large car park outside Standlake village hall (OX29 7SB) with tea stop at Aston Pottery. All welcome.

I thought I'd repeat a ride I lead last year that gives 1* riders a chance to visit Aston Pottery.

After leaving the village hall, we'll ride through the villages of Stanton Harcourt, Hardwick & Yelford before stopping at the pottery after about 12 miles. We'll then have another 5 miles to go back to the hall, via Cote, Shifford & Brighthampton.
I'm aiming to to ride near the top end of 1* pace and the route includes a couple of inclines similar to the rise from the A417 to Childrey.
Report:
Another pleasant 1* ride around the "North Oxfordshire Lake District", on a fairly flat route which just a couple of inclines and a nice swoop down to Bampton.
After stopping at Aston Pottery (Diana's first visit), during which we had a cycling tour of the car park to admire the wonderfully planted borders, we set off along the quiet roads of Cote and Shifford before joining the main road again. At that point, Roger (thank you for sweeping) mentioned that he knew of an off-road route back to Standlake and so after a short ride along the main road, we followed it.
He lead us along a path between some more lakes and which went along a wonderful tree arched section. Just after we turned off this path to head towards the village, we spotted some Rheas so stopped for a photo. We then carried on back to the village hall.
Thank you to everyone for their company and to Roger again for showing us the extra section.
Distance:
