Off-road Ride 2*
Leader:
Robin Tucker
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Off-roading in the dark is an experience you must try for your cycling life to be complete! Knobbly tyres and lights required.

About 15 miles up to the Ridgeway and back down again. Sometimes, by agreement on the night, we might go a bit further.

Bright lights are required for off-road riding in the dark, and a rear light for getting home. I have 2 spare ones that I can lend so you can see if you like it before buying your own. Contact me so I know to bring them.

Dark, cold and wet – we'll ride in any 2. But please let me know if you are coming so I can tell you if I decide to cancel due to really bad weather.
Riders:
David Smith
Frank Schroer
Richard Anstis
Robin Tucker
Ursula Hallam
Riders = 5
Report:
Last of the "Winter" rides. David and Ursula joined two winter regulars. And we climbed the Ridgeway twice.
Distance:
25.75 km (16.00 mi)

Weird, I am sure I was on this ride (and so were you Robin!). Had a puncture which was fixed with everyone lights following the proceedings. This was on a very warm day for the end of March and as the clocks were changed in the weekend before it so most of the ride was in the (twi)light
