Autumn Evening Ride 2*
Leader:
John Talbot
Start Time:
7:00 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Quick but flat 2* ride in the Vale for 1.5 to 2 hours covering around 40km each week. We will not ride quite 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.

Keeping it flat and simple for the first of the night rides. Out via Denchworth and Goosey and then on the A417 to Stanford (should be quiet with the bridge closed). A loop via Fernham, Longcot, Uffington, Baulking will get us back to Goosey and the usual route back to Grove. Total distance 38km.
Riders:
Andy Pixton

Riders = 6

Weather:
clear sky (night)
Report:
A perfect evening for cycling, dry, clear, full Moon and no wind! So it was slightly disappointing only half a dozen riders were out to enjoy it.

The roads were quiet especially Cow Lane which is closed at the moment, we negotiated the slalom through the barriers. Ursula was visited by the fairy near Farmer Gow's and despite two blasts on the sweeper's whistle the rest of the group didn't hear it and carried on! At Longcot it was noticed we were two riders short so went back for an all hands on deck repair.

An uneventful return via Uffington and Baulking with plenty of chatting despite the brisk pace. A very pleasant night out!

Distance:
40.70 km (25.29 mi)
