Report:
12 cyclists left Grove heading out to Denchworth, West Hanney left at the monument towards Kingston Bagpuize at quite a fast pace with the wind to our right. Taking the 2nd right into the wind we made way out to the junction of the Witney Abingdon road planning on taking al eft and heading back to Kingston Bagpuize and Southmoor however when we reached the junction Brian was missing after waiting for a short while Geoff headed back to look for Brian while we waited . Cyclists began to get fed up with waiting when Geoff seemed to be gone a long time. It was suggested that half went on and half turned back to look for Brian and Geoff but I made the ride leaders decision and decided we would all turn back and find Brian and Geoff and take the shorter route to our destination. Found Brian and Geoff en-route and continued our ride down into Southmoor and back up to Charney Bassett through the village taking a right turn to Asti Stud and back to the Fox at Denchworth to meet the 1* and 3* group; however there were only two takers for pub so Brian and myself led the group back to Grove Old Mill Hall.
19.4 mile at an average of 12.8 miles an hour.
Distance:
31.22 km (19.40 mi)
