Leader:
Robin Tucker
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Off-road ride around local tracks, usually about 15 miles. Knobbly tyres and good lights required. We are keen to welcome new riders and have spare lights available to borrow if you let me know.

Dark, cold and wet - we'll ride in any 2. 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:
light rain showers (night)
Report:
A few patches of rain tonight, and coldest night yet (7C) so we stayed on the north side of the Ridgeway, but still got out as far as Harwell. David Y's bike was in for service, so he borrowed the bike shops full sus 29er. He was cruising along easily with a big grin.

Up Crab Hill & Goddards Brook to the Ridgeway. East to the descent to the corner of Harwell Campus - fast and a bit sketchy coming round the corner on to a stutter-bump surface.

One climb wasn't enough, despite the threat of more rain, so we went up zig zag hill and down Betterton. David B suggested we see how far we could get without pedalling. We did all get down the hill, but once it levelled off we slowed down.

I ground to a halt first, with DB about ten feet ahead. DY and Richard were another 30 feet on from us. Does that prove that 29ers roll better?

We headed back to Wantage on puddled roads and cycle track that seemed to clean our bikes. So when DB suggested the cycle track back to Grove instead of Crab Hill, we all agreed that it was worth doing to save bike cleaning time!
