Tuesday Evening 2* Ride 2*
Leader:
John Tranter
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Weekly 1.5 hour rides at a riding pace of 18-20km/h (11-13mph). Not likely to be very hilly.

I hope this isn't cheating, but I realised we hadn't done Hackpen since June, and everyone seemed to like going down Blowingstone, so a repeat route:

Through the Letcombes and up our favourite pair of little hills: Holborn and Hackpen. Then we carry on down the other side towards Lambourn, take a right back over Seven Barrows, down (mercifully, down) Blowingstone Hill, then also down Kingston Lisle Hill and via Goosey and Denchworth home.

NB: please bring lights as the nights are drawing in.

Riders = 10

Weather:
light rain showerssunny intervals
Report:
A few spots of ride at the beginning were a bit worrying, but the evening got better and by the end of the ride we had rainbows and a glorious sunset. A good gallop up the hills and a good pace throughout.

Thanks to all for a lovely ride!

Great ride John. A bit of everything - climbing, descending and lovely evening light to finish in.
