Daytime 2* Thursday Ride 2*
Leader:
Carin Tranter
Start Time:
10:00 am
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Sociable rides from 24km-40 km (15-25 miles) at a pace of 16-19km (10-12 miles) per hour. Please check website on the morning of the ride if the weather is poor as the ride may be cancelled or the start time changed. This is a pre-bookable ride. To book a place, text your name to the ride leader no earlier than 9:00am on the Friday before the ride. You will receive confirmation or be advised that the ride is fully booked. A reserve list will be maintained.

This week we are going to the Grocer Chef at Ardington but the long way round. Out to Denchworth then across to the A417 along the main road a short way to West Challow, then up to Childrey, along the bridle way to East Challow, into Wantage and then out to Ardington via Lockinge and Betterton. Home via Lains Barn.
Report:
This was a fantastically well attended ride, with 11 riders. We split into two groups to maintain the maximum of 6 on a ride. Roger led the first group to set off and I led the second group. Thank you Roger. :)

There was also 6 people meeting us at the socially distanced coffee venue in Ardington so that made 17 riders altogether. We saw some people out for the first time in a number of years as well as the returning regular riders.

The ride was very pleasant with no mishaps. We took photos of the two groups back in Grove. (We missed off David who'd returned directly to Wantage rather than coming back to Grove.)
Distance:
27.36 km (17.00 mi)
