Tuesday 3* Evening Ride 3*
Leader:
Karen Townsin
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Weekly 1.5 - 2 hours at a riding pace of 20-24km/h (13-15mph). May be hilly.

This is a bridging ride at the lower level of the range to encourage riders who feel ready to move up to the next star level.

Tonight the plan is to head out to Farringdon via Fernham. There is a little climbing in the middle of the ride, but otherwise it's pretty flat. We will be crossing and re-crossing the A420 and there's a short section on the A417 on the return journey.
A ride of 38km/24 miles at approx. 20-21kph/12.5-13mph should see us back at OMH by 8:30ish.

Report:
What a fabulous evening. A great turnout again, so it was necessary to split the ride. Thanks so much to Kath and Andy for leading and sweeping duties in the second group.
A smaller group made the whole evening a more relaxed and chatty affair, and allowed us to make the crossings of the A420 much more safely.
Without Des's local knowledge, our group took the more traditional route through Farringdon, but it was great to see a running group out and so many others enjoying the evening.
Thanks all for a lovely ride.
