Sunday Shortie 3* 3*
Leader:
Katherine Boyce
Start Time:
9:00 am
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
The second in the Sunday Shorties Ride series - a 2 hour ride at 3* pace.

Building on Jon's trip to Uffington last week, this week's Shorty is to Uffington via Littleworth and Faringdon :). Few hills but nothing major (43km and 300m of climbing). A good chance for us to work out what is possible in 2 hours.

Starting from Grove at 9am but finishing at Wantage Market Place for a coffee stop for anyone that wants one.
Report:
Despite the early Sunday hour, 9 gathered for the inaugural 3* Sunday Shortie. This was particularly good as before 8am, the wind wasn't just howling but the rain was hammering on the windows in the dark!

Relatively quickly, we were cycling in sunshine towards a rainbow, which although lovely was ominous :0. Luckily the bits of rain we did encounter weren't much of an issue and didn't last long. There was a lot of water around and some of the roads were very mucky. The wind was a real battle in some of the more exposed areas and just there for all but the return along the Springline road.

6 or so of us intended to go to Marmalade, but with it full, we all decided to say goodbye and go home to get out of our wet and muddy gear! All-in-all a great start to the new Sunday morning rides.
Distance:
46.23 km (28.73 mi)
