Steve Boreham - 07946 744618
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
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.

Description:
Off-road ride around local tracks, usually about 15 miles. Knobbly tyres and good lights required. We are keen to welcome new riders and have spare lights available to borrow if you let me know. Dark, cold and wet - we'll ride in any two. But please let me know if you are coming so I can tell you if I decide to cancel due to really bad weather.

Blowingstone Boomerang 2* Add to Calendar
Contact:
Nick Dunton - 07774 838310
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:
Village Hall Uffington
Description:
Now in it's 5th year of running, this popular but tough 100km audax is organised by Cycling UK Wantage. Note the event is run under Audax UK regulations and there is a [small] fee payable if you want to ride. While we will accept entries on the day, it would help enormously if you can pre-enter via the Audax UK website [see link below], and pay via PayPal. That way, you also receive the route description ahead of time and can prepare, and we can ensure there is enough cake at the finish for everyone!

New for this year will be the �Blowingstone-Boomerang� � a 53km event aimed at those who don�t want to tackle the full route. This still includes Blowingstone hill but has considerable less climbing than the main event and is designed to encourage more local riders to participate. More details at: https://sites.google.com/site/thamesvalleyaudax/events-in-the-thames-valley-area/blowingstone. Further details, including how to enter, will be circulated closer to the date.
