Tuesday Evening 2* Ride 2*
Leader:
John Tranter
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:

I think the time has come to gently introduce one of the classic local hills - Hackpen. We will head out around Wantage to the Letcombes and then tackle the ascent up to the Ridgeway on Hackpen Hill. Don't worry - everyone will go at their own pace and we will re-group for a breather at the top. Your reward will be a huge sense of achievement, great views and a lovely swoop down to Sparsholt. Then we'll work along the contours to Kingston Lisle for another great descent into the Vale and an easy route home via Goosey and Denchworth.

Report:
A big welcome to Harry and Dan on their first ride with the Club. Also a welcome back to Jo on her second!

Perfect weather for a ride and the Vale was really looking at its best. Everyone coped admirably with the hills, both up and down, and the views really were spectacular from the top of Hackpen.

All round, a great ride and great company!
