Tuesday Evening 4* Ride 4*
Leader:
Frank Schroer
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:

2-2.5 hours ride at a riding pace of 25-29km/h (16-18mph). Lots of hills !

Out and back via A338 to avoid (known) roadworks.

This is a ride with plenty of climbs but this being the end of the summer season, I planned to cram in as much as possible before the daylight will disappear so the pace will be high (including on the hills). There are shortcut options if we fall behind, such as miss out on the Curridge loop (https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28338720) or even miss out on Boxford/Winterbourne as well, but let's aim for doing the full route anyway and decide what we do based on progress.

Days are shortening quicker now, so working front and rears lights for last part (down Chain Hill, if not before) essential!
Report:
Full route was done with a glorious sunset developing and (twi)light staying with us all the way down to Chain Hill, where everyone went their own way.

Not much of notice else than we braved a stretch of road under (re)construction at Denchworth road in Wantage, a kamikaze style car driver encountered just after the woolley monument who was driving whilst looking into the sunshine and saw one of us only at the last moment and the fact that the ride gained a Pete more at Peasemore (coincidence ?)
Distance:
62.80 km (39.02 mi)
