Start Time:

Start Location:

Description:
RIDE CANCELLED - - *****RIDE CANCELLED****RIDE CANCELLED*****

The heavy snow and then promise of freezing weather tonight/tomorrow means this ride is cancelled. I will try to run it at a later date.


Half day ride (60-70km / 38-45 miles), with a tea stop, riding pace of 20-24km/h (13-15mph). Likely to visit distant destinations. Not suitable for irregular riders. Climbing likely.

This ride will pass through Denchworth and Charney Bassett, then across the A420, down Buckland Hill and through Bampton. It will skirt round Lechlade and go through Coleshill then back across the A420 to Fernham and Uffington. We'll then go along the spring line to Wantage for a cafe stop at either The Bay Tree or Costa, if people wish. The first three quarters of the ride is flat, with all the climbing concentrated in the last 10 miles. The ride is just under 40 miles and we should be in Wantage by 1pm.
Please note this ride will finish at Wantage.
