2* Saturday Half Day Ride 2*
Leader:
John Tranter
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.

A simple and flat route around the Vale of White Horse, as befits the time of year. We will head out to Denchworth and Hanney, up to Fyfield and then the quiet back road parallel to the A420 all the way to Hinton Waldrist. I'm planning a coffee stop at Stanford in the Vale before we carry on to Fernham and Longcot. We then turn for home via Uffington and Goosey.

Around 33 miles.
Report:
This was a ride which continued a recent theme of miserable weather! Cold, wet and windy is not a nice combination, but that is what we got. In which case, great credit to such a good group of riders brave or foolhardy enough to join the ride! It was particularly nice to welcome Sally back, after one ride last year.

The first half of the ride was soaking, then the next part was cold and into a headwind. It was a relief to get to the warmth and sustenance provided by the always friendly team at the Stanford cafe. Steve and Lorna joined us there, having done their own ride out from Grove.

By popular agreement, we cut the ride short and headed straight back to Grove. The final stretch home was mercifully wind assisted and the sun came out!
Distance:
37.01 km (23.00 mi)
