We’ll head out across to Denchworth, then we’ll pass through West Hanney, SouthMoor, over the A420 via the bridge. Then we’ll have a nice gentle decent passing over the Thames at Newbridge. We’ll then turn onto some lovely
quite lanes, passing through Northmoor, Stanton Harcourt, Yelford, Cote & Aston. Optional / social distance stop at Aston Pottery, the weather is looking fine, so we may be able to sit in the garden if it’s not to busy, Or there is an takeaway option, you can also bring your own drink & snack if you prefer! Once we are all refreshed, we’ll make our way through to Clanfield & back over the Thames at Radcot. We’ll then have the only two climbs of the day, Faringdon & a small part of Coles Hill.
Then we will have a small descent to Great Coxwell, passing back over the A420, then onto Little Coxwell, Fernham, Baulking, Goosey, Denchworth & finally arriving back in Grove for around 13:30hrs.

Ride distance = 71.00km / 44.3mi.
Elevation gain, 1,414.2 ft.
Six of us set off from Grove on a very cool & cloudy morning.
No real dramas to report on the first half of the ride. The roads were very quiet, which was nice. We arrived at Aston
Pottery for 11:10am. The cafe was very quiet indeed, just a few other cycle clubs enjoying some beverages. Service was as normal excellent, we all enjoyed our drinks & some scrumptious cakes. The second half of the was nice & quiet.
The ride leader suffered a rear blowout, this was soon fixed & we made good headway for Grove. We said goodbye to Katherine at Goosey, as she wanted to get some more miles in, getting ready for her 100 Mile ride on Thursday. We arrived back in Grove in good time. Thanks to everyone for your company, a lovely group to lead! Hope to see you all very soon. :D
