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.

To complement John's route earlier this month, I thought we might head out North again, but this time to Aston Pottery. Depending on the weather we might actually manage a tea stop!
So out via Denchworth, Lyford, Southmoor and Standlake to Aston. Return route via Great Brook, Buckland, Charney Bassett and Denchworth.
There is one climb to take us out of the Thames basin on the return route, but otherwise a flat route of 50km/30 miles.
Lights will be needed for the return journey.
Report:
A lovely ride today; a great bunch of riders and much milder conditions than of late.
As we gathered at OMH, Steve (who had hoped to join us) and Lorna arrived to wave us off - get better soon Steve.
We made good time on the outward journey, despite the head wind, crossing the A420 safely and splitting into smaller groups where necessary. Stopping close to Aston to put on rain-jackets ensured that the only shower of the day ceased immediately.
The cakes at Aston Pottery were as good as ever, and despite feeling quite comfortable and warm, we decided to set off again after a quickish stop.
Everyone managed the hill from Tadpole Bridge with style and the rest of the return journey passed with plenty of chatter.
Welcome to Eddie on his first CUK Wantage ride and welcome back to Simon.

Thanks everyone for being such an easy group to lead. You stayed together well and I'm sure Oxfordshire's motorists appreciated your small group discipline on the A415.
Distance:
49.30 km (30.63 mi)
