Uffington Church - Tea and cakes 1*
Leader:
Steve Swanton
Start Time:
2:00 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
To mark the last Sunday of the year when afternoons teas will be available at St Mary's church, a gentle ride out to Uffington. We'll head out via Charney Bassett, Gainfield and Fernham, returning via Baulking and Fernham. A round trip of about 20 miles. All welcome.
Report:
A cool overcast autumnal afternoon saw 7 riders gather for a leisurely outing to Uffington and the last chance this year to sample the tea and cakes on offer in the church (excellent as ever). With a group at the more experienced end of 1*, we rode a little faster than usual 1* pace, fairly bowling along trying to keep up with a Di at one point!
We had enjoyable detours to less visited corners of the Vale on our way out and back - the pretty village of Shellingford and the expanse of Baulking green. And after a headwind on our outward leg and some glowering clouds that threatened rain, we enjoyed the tailwind and some sunshine on the way home.
A most enjoyable afternoon to mark the end of the Cycling Uk year. Thanks everyone for your company and a happy new cycling year!
