The Harlequin Hack 3*
John Talbot
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:
Now organised by CTC Wantage this popular audax starts and ends at the Thomas Hughes Memorial Hall in Uffington.

A fairly gentle 100km ride through the edges of the Cotswolds to Chipping Norton and back.

This is run under audax regulations and pre-entry is required. See for full details.

UPDATE 3rd Apr :- I will accept entries on the day although it makes the paperwork easier if you do it in advance via PayPal.

sunny intervalswindy (fine)
A fine but chilly morning greeted the 39 starters (plus 2 who rode the day before). All got round safely in the time limit most mentioning the nagging headwind back from Chipping Norton.

A massive thanks to Nick Stokell and Des Higgs for manning the controls. Tracey Talbot, Jasmine Talbot, Nick Dunton and June Dunton for helping to run the HQ. Katherine Boyce and her chums from Flexicare for preparing the food for the arrivée. Without these guys and gals giving up their Sunday the ride couldn't have happened.

A very generous bunch of riders donated a considerably sum of money to charity too.

Thank you to everyone who rode for supporting the event. Same again next year?!

Great day out. I recommend it to more club riders next year. The start and finish at Uffington worked really well
