3* Saturday Half Day Ride 3*
Eddie Little
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:
Half day ride (60-70km / 38-45 miles), with a tea stop, riding pace of 20-24km/h (13-15mph). Likely to visit distant destinations. Not suitable for irregular riders. Climbing likely.

We'll head out across to Denchworth, then we'll pass through West Hanney, Southmoor, over the A420 via the bridge. Then we will have a gentle decent passing over the Thames at Newbridge. We'll then turn onto some lovely Quiet lanes, passing through Northmoor, Stanton Harcourt,
Yelford, Cote & Aston.Our tea stop will be at Aston Pottery. Once we are all refreshed, we'll make our way onto Bampton, Clanfield & back over the Thames at Radcot. We'll then have the only two climbs of the day, Faringdon & part of Coles Hill. Then we will have a small decent to Great Coxwell, passing back over the A420, then onto Little Coxwell, Fernham, Baulking, Goosey, Denchworth & finally arriving back in Grove for around 13:30hrs. :D

Ride distance = 71.00km / 44.3mi

Aston Pottery booked!!
A very nice turn-out of 15 riders for this half day ride with perfect riding conditions!

We decided to split into 2 groups for safety purposes.
Team Eddie. Thanks to Jon T for sweeping for me. Team Jo. Thanks to Jo for leading, to Yvonne for sweeping.

The first half of the ride was very enjoyable & incident free.

As usual Aston Pottery served up excellent drinks & cakes!!

On the second half of the ride Sharron accidentally missed the Great Coxwell turn resulting in her riding the full length of Coles Hill :$ The leader Jo had to chase Sharron down eventually catching her up at the other end of Coles Hill (sweat) Jo's Strava recorded an impressive 37.8mph for that section of the ride!!

It was very nice to see Roger & some of the other riders in my group stretching there legs along Baulking Lane.

A fun day with good company!!
71.00 km (44.12 mi)
