Saturday Afternoon Ride from Grove 2*
Leader:
Karen Townsin
Start Time:
1:00 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:

Monthly 45-55km (30-40 miles) afternoon ride, with a tea stop, at a riding pace of 18-20km/h (11-13mph). Not likely to be very hilly. Might be a struggle for new or irregular riders in winter months.

The plan is to follow the route of the Childrey Spring Classic, taking in the quiet, flat lanes of the North and West of the area, before heading back via the spring line and the villages of Sparsholt, Goosey and Denchworth.
There is one sharp climb at Compton Beauchamp, but it's short enough to walk up if you want to. Tea will be at Britchcombe Farm.
Report:
Despite a chilly North wind, it was a fantastic turnout, with more and more riders appearing as 1pm approached.
The wind was a little troublesome on the way to Southmoor, but it made for lovely clear views of the Ridgeway as we headed back South.
The ride progressed pretty much as planned, with the scouts staying up on the hill and giving us a clear run at the Teapot at Britchcombe Farm.
Thanks everyone for a sociable, enjoyable ride. :)
Distance:
