Winter Evening Ride 2*
Leader:
Chris Walters
Start Time:
7:00 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Do you want to have a regular weekday outdoor ride through the winter months?

Quick but flat 2* ride in the Vale for 1.5 to 2 hours covering around 40km each week. We will not ride as fast as 3* pace, nor will we tackle hills. Will not run if icy, very windy or wet - check the website for cancellation by mid-day on the day of the ride.

Good lights capable of lasting the full ride are essential, as is suitable clothing to deal with the cold.

On the first Tuesday of every month we will have a slightly shorter ride, finishing at the Fox in Denchworth for some liquid refreshment at 20:30, where other club members are invited to join us for a social.

Weather:
partly cloudy (night)
Report:
There was I thinking it might be a few hardy souls braving the darkness. 15 riders turned out for the inaugural 2* evening winter ride. After a quick briefing on lights, and other slight changes to our usual riding style, we set off for a simple circuit of the Vale. It wasn't too cold and the wind was very light. Uffington church was nicely illuminated and greeted our passing with a peal of bells, making it hard to continue the conversations for a minute or two.

There were no dramas, just a nice social feel to the ride, with the pace being pretty solid for 2* but easily manageable by all.

Well done to everyone for easily adapting their normal riding styles to the darkness and for being such a fantastic group to be riding with. I guess that the experiment is over - roll on next week!

Distance:
38.70 km (24.05 mi)
