Report:
The final summer ride has come along too quickly with the sun setting earlier. Seven set out with two new riders which hopefully proves that 4* has been resounding success.

We made good pace out to Uffington but as the leader left his garmin at home you`ll have to take my word for that .Next followed the Compton Beauchamp climb which Peter achieved a top ten on strava, no guesses who was last!

Moving swiftly up Ashbury Hill followed by a chase down to Lambourn and the climb back up to the Hackpen descent, where we all re grouped before a leisurely pace back to Wantage with still some light approximately 50k in 1:45 minutes.

Well done to all the riders who have joined to make 4* an established group.
Distance:
