Tuesday evening 1* Ride 1*
Leader:
Carin Tranter
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Our leisurely and sociable 10-mile club rides are designed specifically with adult newcomers to cycling and youngsters in mind, or those who just want some relaxed and sociable exercise. We cover a distance of about 10 miles at a gentle pace of 8-10 mph, following quiet country lanes and the occasional easy off-road track. We stop regularly to catch our breath, to take in the views and anything that takes our interest along the way.

Slightly longer 1* ride via Charney Bassett and along the bridleway to Pusey. Return back to Charney and possible extra loop to Lyford
Approx 14 miles if we do the Lyford loop.

Weather:
sunny
Report:
A lovely sunny evening with a breeze gave us a fun ride out to Pusey along the bridleway. A nearly all ladies ride except John came along as back up although we did think we would manage!
The bridleway was unexpectedly rather overgrown with many doubting the leader's directions when we dived off into the woods! After the woods came the barley and maize field but we still managed to get through along the tyre tracks left by the tractor. We were on the correct route and made it back to the main road through the lovely village of Pusey. We returned via Charney Bassett and Lyford.
Distance:
22.85 km (14.20 mi)
