Report:
A fairly flat comfortable ride for all 3 riders. A steady pace was kept up and we got back to Grove before lighting up time. (We all had lights on anyway) A very easy ride to lead with no problems and good company.

Robin Tucker
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
WMP
Description:
NB: Wantage Market Place start .
Off-road ride around local tracks, usually about 15 miles. Knobbly tyres and get you home 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.

Weather:
sunny intervals
Report:
Starting from Wantage Market Place gave us the chance to get a bit further afield this evening. We went up Lark Hill, a tough climb and a bit damp but we managed ok. Then along the Ridgeway - with puddles but very fine views this evening.

We chose the Harwell descent, grassy and 'as fast as you want' then the really enjoyable twisty singletrack in the woods round the campus. This raised enough enthusiasm that we even added a bit more of this in near Hendred before heading back along the Sustrans route and via Ardington.
Distance:
28.97 km (18.00 mi)

Report:
Great to welcome Yvonne and Jerry back for there first ride of the season. A flat loop today (so I took the chance to take my Fixie on a club ride) around the vale, through Lyford and up to Southmoor, the only climb of the evening was the footbridge over the A420, back via Hinton Waldhirst and Stanford in the Vale. Was good to wave to the other 3* group who we saw going in the opposite direction as we rode thrugh Gainfield
