Tuesday Evening Off Road Ride 2*
Leader:
Robin Tucker
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Off-road ride around local tracks, usually about 15 miles. Knobbly tyres and good lights required. We are keen to welcome new riders and have spare lights available to borrow if you let me know. Dark, cold and wet - we'll ride in any two. But please let me know if you are coming so I can tell you if I decide to cancel due to really bad weather.
Report:
All the other rides were cancelled due to weather, but the off-road goes on! Most of our regular riders were off today, but we had two new riders over from the road side today.

The good news is that the last rain passed over at about 5pm and the sun even came out a few times on the ride. There were plenty of puddles around and the wet ground made a few sections a bit slippy, but we took it gently and had no major problems.

Our route took us out of Wantage on the cycle path west and up to the Ridgeway at Knights Farm. We enjoyed the views as we headed east to Harwell and then took the grassy descent to the corner of the campus - great fun even when a bit damp.

At this point I realised that we'd started in Grove not Wantage, so had covered more distance than planned, but being where we were and in good form, we still extended the route through the woods round the campus - it's great fun! Then it was back on the Sustrans route and we opted for the cycle track to Grove rather than get muddy again.
Distance:
28.97 km (18.00 mi)
