Tuesday 3* Evening Ride 3*
Leader:
Nick Dunton
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Relatively short this evening [36.8km] but hilly. Out through Denchworth and Goosey. Climb to Kingston Lisle, then Blowingstone. Back over Hackpen and the Letcombes.
Report:
Gathering storm clouds caused some apprehension at the start but we got round dry. A blustery wind slowed progress in places, particularly climbing Hackpen from Lambourn, but generally we maintained a good pace throughout. Harvesting had started on the downs above Letcombe with a toxic cloud of dust and chaff blowing across the road to the discomfort of those of us who wear contact lenses. Thanks to Jon for sweeping the ride.
Distance:
37.10 km (23.05 mi)
