Tuesday 2* Evening Ride 2*
Leader:
Jane John
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Weekly 1.5 hour rides at a riding pace of 18-20km/h (11-13mph). Not likely to be very hilly.

Optional stop at The Fox in Denchworth at the end of the ride.

Going out of Grove to the other side of the A420 and looping back again, making a wonky figure of 8. The ride includes some lovely stretches of tarmac. 18.6 miles and only 393ft of climbing, allowing time to stop off for a swift or slow pint on the way back. What's not to like?

Weather:
black low cloud
Report:
A murky, cool evening after the fabulous bank holiday weather with a little 'mizzle' (too light to even call it drizzle) at the start. We had 11 riders for our loopy flat ride to just north of the A420. After being reminded by John T to keep the speed to between 11-13mph (I blame Des!) we had an enjoyable spin round the little back lanes to Lyford, Fyfield Wick, a slightly hairy dash across the A420 followed by a rather safer one back across on the pedestrian bridge, popping out at Southmoor then back through Charney Bassett to Denchworth. Some peeled off to the pub as the remainder of us pedalled back to Grove.
Thank you to John T for sweeping and for the leader tips. L plates not off yet! ;-)
