3* Saturday Half Day Ride 3*
Leader:
Eddie Little
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Half day ride (60-70km /38-45 miles), with a tea stop, at a riding pace of 20-24km/h (13-15mph). Likely to visit distant destinations. Not suitable for irregular riders.Climbing likely.

For this ride we'll be staying close to home using local roads around the Vale. We'll head out through the Letcombes &
take a trip up Hackpen, from this point we'll take advantage
of the lovely Sheepdrove road which takes us down into the
Lambourn valley, we'll then have an early tea stop/ breakfast at Goodies cafe. Once we are all refreshed we'll head along Seven Barrows, taking in the nice descent of Blowingstone Hill. We'll then wiggle our way along the Springline until we reach Knighton.
This is where the route becomes a lot flatter, we'll cut through the Vale, passing through some nice villages.
Compton Beauchamp, Fernham, Shellingford, Hatford, Stanford in the Vale & Denchworth arriving back in Grove for around 13:15hrs. Ride distance, 36.3miles, 58.4km.
Hope to see you on the ride, Happy Christmas,Ed. (hi)
Report:
A very chilled group to lead;) Only one punchture, but
this was soon sorted! Goodies Cafe was fast & efficient!
More than happy to return there! The roads were fairly quiet.
Overall a nice ride with great company (clap)
Let's make 2020 a special year, hope to see you on a ride very soon! Ed 8)
