Tuesday 4* Evening Ride 4*
Nick Stokell
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
Weekly 1.5-2 hours ride at a riding pace of 25-29km/h (16-18mph). 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.

Anti-clockwise loop passing through Steventon, Sutton Courtney, Abingdon and Kingston Bagpuize. This is a pretty flat ride and we'll set out at a steady pace of 25 km/h in keeping with the ride's bridging status and try and keep together! It should therefore, mechanicals apart, finish around 2030.

Record size group I think, appreciating the good weather and flat terrain, so an early decision was taken to split in two - thanks to Phil for leading the other half.

Somewhere en route David got separated (I don't think he was in my half but apologies if he was). One surreal moment when we found Adrian in North Abingdon waiting for us despite him starting in the second group behind us!

The outward roads were a little busy but after Kingston Bagpuize the quiet lanes were appreciated.

Due to operator error on the Garmin there is no record below, but the first group arrived back at Millbrook at 2020 followed a few minutes later by the second. Later - Happy to report this was a genuine Garmin error - file given incorrect date and time, an issue which was resolved when transferring to Strava (see below). Weird that!
