Regular Wantage Ride 3* Add to Calendar
Contact:
Jo Little - 07900295322
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:
WMP
Description:

All-day touring ride (80-100km / 50-65 miles), lunch and possibly tea stop en route, at a riding pace of 18-22km/h (11-14mph). Not suitable for irregular riders. Climbing almost inevitable.

This ride will head from Wantage along the A417 to Childrey, then past Baulking and Fernham and through Watchfield and Highworth before heading out towards roads unknown (by me) going past Kempsford, Paulton and Quenington before stopping for lunch at Lechlade garden centre (62km/38 miles). We then head back on a well known route via Littleworth, Hatford and Stanford , Denchworth and then back to Wantage.
95km/59 miles but a fairly flat (538m elevation) route.

Please note: this route has been changed slightly since originally put on here. We are now cutting off Quenington as it was very flooded when I did my test ride there at the weekend. The distance is now 59 miles, so not much change.

Sunset: 4:13pm   Twilight Ends: 4:50pm

2* Saturday Half Day Ride 2* Add to Calendar
Contact:
John Tranter - 07836 238350
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
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.

This is a re-run of the ride we had to cancel in October (but with a morning start to catch the daylight): I want to try out the new cafe in Lambourn, so the route will be south through the Letcombes and Hackpen Hill (don't worry - it is a kindly hill which gives you a rest on a flat bit half way up). The reward is a brilliant swoop down across the Downs to Lambourn. After refreshments, we will return along the back road to Ashbury. This is where school geography comes into play as we realise how gentle the slope is on the back side of an escarpment. The dramatic drop down Ashbury Hill shows off the other side before we pootle home through the Vale.

34 miles - a few hills, but well worth it and we will stick to a gentle 2* pace.
