***UPPER BRIDGING RIDE***
This is the first 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 higher end of the pace range.

Our leisurely and sociable 10-mile club rides are designed specifically with adult newcomers to cycling and youngsters in mind, or those who just want some relaxed and sociable exercise. We cover a distance of about 10 miles at a gentle pace of 8-10 mph, following quiet country lanes and the occasional easy off-road track. We stop regularly to catch our breath, to take in the views and anything that takes our interest along the way.

Summer Solstice Ride 3* Add to Calendar
Contact:
Katherine Boyce - 07817 727563
Start Time:
4:15 am
Start Location:
Wantage Market Place
Description:
The mad one where we get up in the early hours and head off to Avebury.

So as promised here's this years solstice ride. This years ride is slightly longer (135km) and the ending is even less tough than last year.

We'll start by wending our way up to the Ridgeway via Hackpen Hill to watch the sunrise before heading off Lambourn and then on to Ashbury, Fox Hill and Chisledon. Here we'll use the 24 hour garage for a first breakfast stop - coffee and pastries! Then on to Avebury and Devises before returning via Hungerford (second breakfast at Tutti Pole) and then returning to Wantage via Kintbury and a cunning route to Chainhill and the glorious swoop back to Wantage.

As ever this is a tough ride but well worth the effort - some exceptional views and because we are going so early we get to take roads not usually suitable for group rides. Please make sure you have lights and snacks. It would be great if you could let me know you are coming, so if necessary I can let the Tutti Pole know we are coming.
