Tuesday Evening 3* Ride 3*
Leader:
Katherine Boyce
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
1.5 - 2 hours at a riding pace of 20-24km/h (13-15mph).

Keeping with the hills theme that seems to have developed with evening 3* rides, I thought we'd pop up Hackpen Hill on our way to Uffington. That is, pop up in terms of most of you then waiting for me at the top 😉.

We'll finish up at the Fox at Denchworth (it's club night) via Baulking and Goosey. For those not stopping at the pub, the return route from Denchworth is straightforward.

Weather:
white cloudblack low cloud
Report:
A good turnout, despite the threatening black clouds and the showers on and off all day.

The views coming down from Hackpen Hill were well worth the climb. We passed through a couple of areas of what appeared to be recent heavy showers and encountered a strong head wind on the Baulking road. Calum kindly took spells at the front, spelled himself by Olivia for a while too.

Thanks to David for sweeping. All in all another pleasant Tuesday evening club ride, rounded off at the pub!
