24, a record Saturday attendance on a lovely Saturday afternoon. The group was split in two from about the start, a faster group going through Option B (gathering with Lambourne members at Ashbury then joining the first group for tea ), the core group going through Option A.
Route details: there were two routes. Option A is flat and short (28 miles approximately). Option B contains one serious hill (Compton Beauchamp) and some few smaller bits of hill, and is longer (36 miles estimated).
Both options:
Grove MS, Denchworth, Lyford, Charney Bassett up to B4508 where left.
B4508 through Hatford, X-road with A417, Shellingford, Fernham, Longcot.
Option A:
Straight on from Longcot to Shrivenham on lane, and teastop at Shrivenham (Barrington Arms pub).
Option B:
From Longcot, left towards Compton Beauchamp. Right on X-road with B4507 on top of the hill, through Ashbury.
Straight on at X-road with B4000 through Idstone and Bishopstone.
At Bishopstone, at the phone box, take right (beware: steep corner), and straight on into Bourton then Shrivenham. Teastop in Shrivenham, same place and timing as Option A above.
Both options:
After the tea, take B4508 direction Longcot. At Longcot take right direction Uffington. Go through Uffington, and then left direction Baulking. Straight on through Baulking up to X-road with A417.
Right on A417 and first left to Goosey, then Denchworth, then Grove.
