Easy Saturday afternoon ride from Grove 1*
Leader:
Sara Ward
Start Time:
1:00 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Monthly 16-32km (10-20 miles) family and social afternoon rides, usually with a tea stop, at a riding pace of 13-16km/h (8-10mph). Occasional short or gentle climbs.

We will head out from OMH along quiet roads and a stretch of bridleway (cycle track!) to Childrey, then wend our way through the villages and descend into Uffington for tea. Returning through the vale. A gentle 19 miles/30km to clear the head, stretch the legs and escape the hoards of Christmas shoppers.

Suitably warm clothes, gloves and lights required.

Final update: The ride is ON. It is windy, bright and forecast to stay that way. We plan to meet as planned and utilise this wintery sunshine.

Weather:
sunnywindy (fine)
Report:
We were pleased to welcome Constance and Karl as new riders and fortune definitely favoured the brave and hardy eleven. The temperature stayed at 2 degreesC but we were rewarded with a delightful, bright and sunny ride out to Uffington.

The Forget-me-not cafe did us proud - tea, coffee and home made cake all served with efficiency and a smile by Donna daughter of Des Higgs (giggle) and co. The group stayed together well for the second leg too and we were back in good shape before the light and temperature dropped significantly.

Thanks all for a very sociable afternoon.
Distance:
