Robin Tucker - [javascript protected email address]
Start Time:
10:00 am
Start Location:
WMP
Description:
Regular off-road rides for 2018 we are toning these down and keeping them closer to Wantage.

Free parking at The Beacon, and meet at Wantage Market Place, by King Alfred.

The rides will be 15-20 miles, on quiet local tracks through the woods, and maybe up to the Ridgeway. Pace equivalent to 2*, best on a mountain bike, but a cyclocross bike and if dry a robust hybrid will be fine. Call/email Robin if you would like to know more.

CUK Oxfordshire 125 miles - Follow the Thames 3* Add to Calendar
Contact:
Robin Tucker - [javascript protected email address]
Start Time:
8:00 am
Start Location:
Wallingford Market Place
Description:
Follow the Thames from its source all the way to Wallingford. At 125 miles 200km, this is a great way to stretch beyond the regular Century distance and set a new benchmark.

We will ride from Wallingford, West along the Ridgeway roughly following the spring line to the source of the Thames near Cirencester. Then we'll follow the river downstream, passing through Lechlade, Bampton, Eynsham, Oxford and Abingdon. In theory it's all downhill!

We'll stop every 25 miles for refreshment and ride at a moderate pace, similar to the Century rides. This will be a long day - we will finish in the dark so bring lights. (Which is also why it's on a Saturday).

Please let me know you are coming to book the food stops.
