2* Saturday Half Day Ride 2*
Eddie Little
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:
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.

As the weather is a little unpredictable at the moment, I've planned for this ride to stay close to home, giving us a
little shelter from the wind, making use of the fantastic villages we have on our doorstep! We'll head out through
West Challow, passing through Childrey, Westcot, Ashbury,
Shrivenham via Stainswick Ln, passing a nice section of the Wilts & Berks Canal. Then on through to Longcot, Hatford,
arriving in Stanford in the Vale for our much earned elevenses! Once we are all refreshed, we'll head for home via Goosey, arriving back in Grove for around 13:30hrs.
Ride distance, 31.9ml/ 51km/

Hope to see you on the ride, Ed. ;)

Well, what can I say. A ride which consisted of blustery conditions, cloudy sun, rain, an exploding chain & derailleur.
Followed by hot drinks & bacon, sausage & egg butties. What more could you ask for on a ride. (giggle)
