Tuesday Evening 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 two. But please let me know if you are coming so I can tell you if I decide to cancel due to really bad weather.

Weather:
partly cloudy (night)
Report:
Welcome back Richard P, and good to see Dave Tallboys out getting muddy too.

Another 'not raining but wet ground' night, but this time a pub night. We started wiggling through Grove and Wantage on various paths and tracks, then out to the Letcombes and up Gramps Hill.
Turn right and the Ridgeway and along to Sparsholt Field for a fast and somewhat sketchy descent.

Then rode the road to the Fox.
Distance:
27.36 km (17.00 mi)
