Tuesday 2* Evening Ride 2*
Karen Townsin
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
Weekly 1.5 hour rides at a riding pace of 18-20km/h (11-13mph). Not likely to be very hilly.

It seems a while since we've headed out through the Letcombes, so I thought we'd do just that this evening. After Holborn Hill we'll swoop down into Childrey, then Sparsholt and Uffington before heading back via Baulking Road, Park Lane and Denchworth.

Apart from Holborn Hill and the slight undulations on the short sections of the Spring Line road, this is a flat ride of 32km/19 miles.

Well, my measure of a good ride is when the leader comes in last chatting to the sweep; so a good ride then. Nicole and I in last behind a competent bunch of keen riders eager to stretch their legs on the last section of the ride.
A very warm welcome to Mark on his first ride with the club, welcome back to Roger and the very welcome return of Terry to what's looking like almost full fitness - though I don't call the Denchworth Dash much of a cool down!

Lovely to see such a good group out even when the forecast looked threatening. Humid and dry until about 10 minutes after we finished when the rain finally came. Great timing everyone. Thanks for a very enjoyable evening and thanks to Nicole for back-marking.
