Tuesday 3* Evening Ride 3*
Leader:
Jon Townsin
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Nights are drawing-in, so this will be a largely flat ride on good roads totalling just under 44km, which we should be able to polish off in under two hours. Out through Buckland to Bampton, through Aston to Brighthampton, then Longworth, bridge over the A420, and home through West Hanney. Some of the route is on the A415, so disciplined group riding will be necessary. The ride will stop at The Fox, so be prepared to find your way back to Grove if you are not feeling convivial. Lights essential.
Report:
A surprisingly cool feel to the penultimate ride of the summer was nullified by a brisk pace at the top of the three star range.
17 riders split into two (more or less) equal groups which nicely managed the roads to the north of of the territory. Thanks to Nick for mapping a very interesting ride over roads less travelled (especially Beggar's Lane!) Shame you weren't able to enjoy it - hope you recover soon.

There was a distinct breeze in the air so thanks to David for sharing the load at the front.

No untoward events to report and everyone had an enjoyable spin with several riders opting to visit the Fox. Good to see Andy and Andy out for a convivial drink but sorry guys, that doesn't help your rider stats :D.

Finally, thanks to Karen for leading the second group and to Nicole and Yvonne for sweeping.
Distance:
41.00 km (25.48 mi)
