Tuesday Evening 3* Ride 3*

Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:

Weekly 1.5 - 2 hours at a riding pace of 20-24km/h (13-15mph). May be hilly.

As those of you that know me know, I have a love hate relationship with hills: so lets do White Horse Hill this week!

A very straightforward route to get there and back, with the main thing being going up Dragon Hill. I am not good at hills so most of you will be waiting for me at the top at the small car park, but there is no doubt when I say that we will all do this at our own pace and we won't rush off the second the last one up the hill arrives ;).

If you've not cycled up WHH before, come give it a go :)
So 14 of us set off in 2 groups to conquer White Horse Hill for the first time this season -, thanks Yvonne for picking up the other leader baton :).

An uneventful trip out, soon we were gathered at the bottom, a last few words for those that had not even heard of Dragon Hill before today and then we were rattling over the cattle grid and starting the upward grind. It's rare for the highest hill in Oxfordshire to not reward with views and reward it did this evening (clap)

Eddie heralded the first of the following group and a few others passed us tail riders from the first group before we crested the top and those waiting. A quick word with the waiting car to warn him of the numbers still to come, a few photos and words of caution to those that had not done the decent before and we set off as one group.

The following wind ensured we were back to Grove in good time.

Another lovely group, thanks to Eddie for keeping an eye on the back and hopefully see you all out on a ride again soon.
