Saturday Afternoon Ride From Grove 2*
Leader:
John Tranter
Start Time:
1:00 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:

A shorter ride given the daylight available. We will go north via Denchworth, Charney and Hatford and do the satisfyingly dramatic drop down into the Thames valley from Littleworth. Then we turn back to Faringdon and make our way home through the Vale, via Fernham and Uffington.

There is an option for a coffee stop in Faringdon, but I suspect it will make more sense to keep on rolling and head for home.

A couple of small hills, but nothing major, and a nice relaxed pace to get us back into the groove after the holidays. 30 miles / 50km at around 12mph / 19kph.

Report:
Really encouraging to see such a big group gathering. It was cold, but fairly bright and a lot of people were clearly keen to get out on their bikes. It was particularly nice to welcome back Charlotte, Des, Jan, Olivia and Sharon - it was great to see you all!

Although it was big group, things went very smoothly - aided by excellent sweeping from Richard. We decided against the coffee stop option in Faringdon in favour of bashing on and finishing in the light, although it was noticeable that we are starting to get a bit more daylight now.

All in all, a pleasant and mellow ride through our beautiful patch. Thanks to all for making it such a nice afternoon out.
