Description:

***BRIDGING RIDE***
This is the first of our Bridging Ride series designed to help those who would like to progress to the next level of cycling. As such it will be ridden at the higher end of the pace range.

So this Bridging Ride will be about hills rather than pace. Everyone I've ridden with this year on the 2* rides is more than capable of celebrating the longer evenings with a ride up White Horse Hill. We will go the most direct route, via the Childrey Bridleway and then the spring line villages. Everyone will climb at their own pace and there will be plenty of time at the top to admire the view and take photos. We'll return via Uffington, Baulking and Goosey.

Report:
What a great evening to potter up White Horse Hill! 13 of us had a great time. We survived the jungle that has become the bridleway to Childrey - at times you could barely see the path. Maybe give it a miss until the autumn!

Having made it to the bottom of White Horse Hill without incident, we all made our way up at our own pace and as ever the view opening up as we ascended was sublime :). The sun came out as we reached the top and took time to admire the glorious vista of the Vale of White Horse.

We all made it down without incident and Karl played lollipop man, making sure everyone crossed the road safely. We said goodbye to Brian as he took the more direct route back

Some stretched their legs on the Baulking road and then we were back in Grove and got swept up by the returning 3* riders. A lovely ride, thank you all and especially all those that took a turn sweeping - Karl, Des, Steve and Gareth.
Distance:
