Report:
Could have been a record turn-out of 11 for a 4 star ride with one new(ish) rider Vicky braving an otherwise 'lad' (?) dominated ride.

Almost everyone took a turn into the headwind on the way out and once past the Farmoor reservoir (a direction not many Tuesday night rides seem to head to somehow?) we soon had the wind behind us.

In quick succession there was a GPS reading error by the ride leader followed by what turned out to be a bridleway that I accidentally seem to have included in the route in trying to avoid riding on the A415 as much as possible. A quick map check got us back on the route soon enough and onto the 'little Holland' section near the Thames with some quiet lanes (with unfortunately still a few cars on the opposite direction).

Phil W had left us by then as he preferred to have dinner with some other group of cyclists (!)

This was a flat ride so far but we went up the only hill of significance of the day at Buckland. From there the group graduallly dispersed with some of us heading to the Fox in Denchworth for a pint or 2.
Distance:
63.00 km (39.15 mi)
