Mince Pie Ride - 2* 2*
Leader:
Glen Savegar
Start Time:
10:00 am
Start Location:
WMP
Description:
Ride out with us to the NT car park at White Horse Hill, Uffington, for mince pies and mulled wine.

The 2* ride will head out to the Letcombes with a short climb of Holborn hill to get the climbing muscles working. We'll then drop down to Childrey and continue through Sparsholt and Westcot to Kingston Lisle. Time permitting, we'll drop down to Uffington before ascending back up to cross the B4507 and continue up over dragon hill below the White horse. We'll join the other cycling groups for minced pies and mulled wine (in aid of Whizz Kidz) in the main NT car park. (about 13 miles)

Afterwards we'll be heading for the Fox at Denchworth for lunch with a loop through the Vale.

Report:
A fantastic turnout under the statue of King Alfred, for a crisp and sunny ride. A cautious pace due to icy roads in some sheltered spots was the sensible option of the day. Most (including myself) decided to walk and push (rather than cycle) the ascent to White Horse Hill due to the slippery approach. It was nice to see a great gathering at the NT car park to enjoy the mince pies and mulled wine, (thanks Neil) and even a spontanious carol rendition. A big thankyou to Steve Swanton for organising a lovely event, and to all the volunteers for helping to make the day a real success :)
