Saturday afternoon ride from Grove 3*
Leader:
Nick Dunton
Start Time:
1:00 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Monthly 60-70km (38-45 miles) afternoon ride, with a tea stop, riding pace of 20-24km/h (13-15mph). Likely to visit distant destinations. Not suitable for irregular riders. Climbing likely.

An old favourite. Heading north for an arc round Witney and dipping our cleats into the Windrush and Evenlode valleys. A mix of small country lanes and some larger roads where we can stretch our legs. A few hills as we flirt with the fringes of the Cotswolds – plus the climb from Tadpole Bridge to Buckland – but nothing serious. Small section of bridle path. Tea stop at Aston Pottery. 78.4km. Back c. 5.30

Report:
A most enjoyable ride, slightly marred by a nagging headwind as soon as we turned west. A great group of riders, which made the leader’s job easy. Nice to see James out on his first ride with the group, ably marshalled by his big sister, Laura. And several less familiar faces were there too: come back soon guys. My computer said average speed 22.8 kph – respectable given the terrain and wind-speed. And we were home 8 minutes ahead of the advertised time! One day the wind will stop …
