Tuesday Evening 2* Ride 2*
Leader:
Gareth Smith
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:

Weekly 1.5 hour rides at a riding pace of 18-20km/h (11-13mph). Not likely to be very hilly.

Out via Denchworth and Lyford to Southmoor. Bridge over the A420. Then along to Hinton Waldrist. Back via Pusey and Charney Bassett. 18.7miles. We should be back before dark but bring lights.
Report:
The weather seemed to threaten rain before we set off, but true to the forecast the evening was fine and dry. A steady ride out towards Southmoor followed by the foot/cycle bridge over the A420. A short stop in Hinton Waldrist by the church - and near the site of the former castle followed by the gentle downhill to Charney Basset via Pewsey. Crossing the A420 again was not so difficult as the traffic had eased by this time of the evening. We had been informed of a cycling time trial taking place along part of our route back from Charney Bassett but we didn't meet any of the competitors - At least until the 3* ride caught us up between Denchworth railway bridge and Grove when some riders sped back.
Distance:
30.09 km (18.70 mi)
