Description:
After the faster and hillier ride last week, a more gentle and flatter offering this Tuesday (and fingers crossed for warmer weather!).A tour of the village greens: visiting West Hanney, Lyford and Charney Bassett, out-and back through Denchworth. A round trip of 12 miles.

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.

Katherine Boyce - 07817 727563
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:
WMP
Description:
All-day touring ride (80-100km / 50-65 miles), lunch and possibly tea stop en route, at a riding pace of 18-22km/h (11-14mph). Not suitable for irregular riders. Climbing almost inevitable.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS STARTS IN WANTAGE MARKET PLACE. There is a paid for carpark at the Beacon or alternatively there is free parking on Ormond Road (with cut throughs into town) or Wantage Recreation Park on Manor Road.

This extra ride was introduced to me by Sharon, it is a delightful jaunt to the south of Hungerford and Chute Causeway, a stunning Roman Road with the most glorious views. We'll have an early coffee break in Hungerford and a late lunch at Croft Beam Engine café. This is 107km with over 1200m of climbing. The views are a fabulous return for the climbing :)

If you are thinking about doing touring but are not sure if it is for you, consider combining this with the Oxfordshire CTC 100 mile ride that is the day after this one (you need to register for that one though!)
