Description:

**WEATHER UPDATE, 5.30pm**
The ride is ON, but we will plan to amalgamate with any 3* or 1* riders who want to join us to do a single ride as published below.


***LOWER BRIDGING RIDE***
This is the second of our Bridging Ride series designed to help those who would like to progress to the next level of cycling. As such it will be ridden at the lower end of the pace range.

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

Optional sociable stop at The Fox, Denchworth after the ride.

A nice mellow loop around the north Vale for this one. Out via Denchworth to West Hanney, up to Southmoor, back via Charney Bassett. 16 miles, flat - a good little extra test for 1* riders and a relaxing pre-pub ride for 2* riders.
Report:
Truly terrible weather forecast - surely no-one would come out? Wrong, as usual!

A good group set off more in hope than anticipation of not being totally drowned. A bit of rain in the first few minutes reinforced this view. But - then it cleared and we got lucky! It turned out to be a slightly breezy but very pleasant run around the north Vale. We made good time, kept to a respectable 2* pace and got to the pub in good time. It was very clear that the 3* and off-road groups had indeed got drenched - we were indeed the lucky ones.
Distance:
27.36 km (17.00 mi)
