Sat Jan 4th 2014
Saturday afternoon ride from Grove 3*
Leader:
John Tranter
Start Time:
1:00 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
** UPDATE, 10.30 SATURDAY - WEATHER WARNING **

Well, my spies in West Oxford are advising strongly against going anywhere near the Thames today, and it's still raining.

Therefore - I think the best plan is to completely change the route and stick with higher ground. We will head out towards Uffington White Horse Hill, see how the ground water is there before deciding whether to climb it or not, and then do a simple loop back through the Vale.

This will therefore be a shorter ride, perhaps 25-30 miles. But - lights will still be essential.
Riders:
John Tranter
Louis Hall
Robin Tucker
Riders = 3

Weather:
cloudy with heavy rain
Report:
Goodness me, that was quite wet!

Congratulations to Louis and Robin for braving the miserable weather and joining me for a spin around the Vale. The spring line road to Ashbury was largely flood free and we exercised an impressive level of self-discipline to resist the temptation to do the White Horse loop.

Lots of surface water through Shrivenham and across to Shellingford and Charney Bassett, followed by the now traditional flood between Denchworth and Grove.

30 miles - at least it was good post-New Year exercise!
Distance:
48.28 km (30.00 mi)
