Saturday Off Road Ride 2* Add to Calendar
Contact:
Start Time:
10:00 am
Start Location:
Wantage Market Place
Description:
Off-road ride for those who like their rides bumpy and (sometimes) muddy on second Saturday mornings. The rides will be about 20 miles, mostly off-road, and aim to finish in time for a late lunch (whether together or heading for home). We adjust the ride to suit the riders and the weather, but in general the terrain will be rough, so a mountain-bike in good condition and with knobbly tyres is recommended.
