Description:
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.

You will receive confirmation or be advised that the ride is fully booked. A reserve list will be maintained.
37.5 Mile route to Bourton with a coffee stop at Ashbury
Report:
A fine morning for a cycle ride with friends, and so nice to have 8 riders out. A big thank you to John Tranter for agreeing to lead a second group of 4 to accommodate this.
David, Des, Gerry and I headed out first and soon realised there was quite a strong wind. Des had ridden from Longcot and was going to peel off after the tea stop to complete the ride. As we struggled towards Buckland from Charney Bassett and on to Shellingford we soon realised why Des was not keen to return to Grove!
John led the second group of Lizzie, Sally and Nick and they quickly caught us up as we stopped to remove layers. From Shellingford we went to Watchfield skirting the married quarters, on through Shrivenham and Bourton, a truly picturesque village, before going through Bishopstone and Idstone towrads our welcome coffee stop at Ashbury. As we were ordering our coffees the second group arrived and were able to enjoy a socially distanced chat keeping to our separate bubbles.
From here it was literally all down hill with the wind behind us we flew through Knighton, Uffington, Baulking and Goosey home.
A lovely ride with good company, new ground for Gerry and Lizzie and a first for Lizzie this being her longest ride to date, well done!
