2* Saturday Half Day Ride 2*
Leader:
Jan McCabe
Start Time:
12:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
NOTE: 12:30 pm start time, aim to be back before dark, but please ensure youhave lights incase we are late or poor visibility.

Half day ride (45-55km / 30-40 miles), with a tea stop, at a riding pace of 18-20km/h (11-13mph). Not likely to be very hilly. Might be a struggle for new or irregular riders in winter months.

At just over 25 miles, a shorter than normal half day ride on Saturday, heading west through KingstonLisle anf Uffington and on to Farmer Gows for a coffee stop, depending on what weather is like and how much daylight there is and how we are feeling, I might possibly add a few extra miles on after the coffee stop.
Report:
A leisurely ride out to Farmer Gows and back, it was a dull November afternoon, but the morning's rain had disappeared and it wasn't too cold.
A gentle paced ride, with just one hill, we arrived at Farmer Gow's just as the kids birthday party group was leaving, the refreshements here are limited (hot drinks and a few pre packed cakes to choose from), but its conveniently placed and seldom busy, so met our requirements.
After Tea Des and Karl left us, and the rest of us continued through Shellingford, Gainfield and Charney to retrn to Grove around 3:30pm
Distance:
42.00 km (26.10 mi)
