Tuesday 1* Evening Ride 1*
Steve Boreham
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
Our leisurely and sociable 10-mile club rides are designed specifically with adult newcomers to cycling and youngsters in mind, or those who just want some relaxed and sociable exercise. We cover a distance of about 10 miles at a gentle pace of 8-10 mph, following quiet country lanes and the occasional easy off-road track. We stop regularly to catch our breath, to take in the views and anything that takes our interest along the way.

This week, will go out via Denchworth, to West Hanney, and on to East Hanney, before heading back via the track to West Hanney, and then track across to the Denchworth Road.

Then optional stop at The Fox in Denchworth at the end of the ride. for those after refreshment, or straight back to Grove.

Around 10.5 miles and flat

Was a lovely sunny day.... that is... up until the evening, so disappointingly overcast, with rain threatening. However, a few spots early on did not materialise further, and we stayed dry. Tentative suggestion by me to extend the ride a bit, but due to possible rain this was not risked...

A slightly "select" group, we welcomed Clare, and daughter Emma, on their first ride - on a new bike and a newly acquired bike.

Although the ride was not extended, there were still the two "off road" sections to challenge the riders. This time, the ride leader's bike resisted the temptation to get a puncture - unlike before!). This was after we "overtook" the 4* ride in West Hanney...... well I suppose they were having a rest....

Carin and Mandy then adjourned to the pub, whilst the rest of us turned back to Grove. At the edge of Grove, Clare & Emma headed for home, as did Naomi, The two Steve's feeling the pub pull, so back we went.

Nice to see Clare & Emma, and hope to see you again. Thanks to all for an enjoyable evening.
