Tuesday evening 1* Ride 1*
Leader:
Steve Swanton
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
All too soon our last Tuesday evening ride of the season. With limited daylight, we will finish with a flat ride around the Vale visiting Lyford, Charney Bassett and Goosey before returning via Asti stud and Denchworth. A round trip of about 11 miles. Aiming to be back in Grove by sunset, but lights are required in case of any delays.

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:
A cooler evening with a breeze and a slightly autumnal feel for our last Tuesday evening outing of the season. Eight regulars were keen to make the most of it and we did. After brief stops in Denchworth, Lyford and Charney Bassett, we continued on to Goosey green where Martyn led a small group over to the church to admire the weather vane. As the evening light faded, bike lights were required for the last stretch home. There was a distinct drop in temperature too. Back at OMH just before 8 after an enjoyable spin. Thanks everyone.
Our 1* rides do of course continue throughout the year - please keep an eye on the website for details. Hope to see you all again soon.
Distance:
