Tuesday Evening 2* Ride 2*
Leader:
John Tranter
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:

Weekly 1.5 hour rides at a riding pace of 18-20km/h (11-13mph). Not likely to be very hilly.

UPDATE: OK, apologies but I have changed my mind. I think without full sunshine, a 2* pace to the White Horse and back is going to get us back in too much darkness.

So - we will end the Tuesday 2* season with a nice mellow ride around the north Vale. Out to Charney Bassett, through Pusey, Hinton Waldrist and Longworth before taking the bridge over the A420 to Southmoor and back down everyone's favourite smooth road to Lyford or Hanney (depending on time) before heading home via Denchworth.

We shouldn't be out in total darkness, but it will definitely be getting dark so good lights will be essential.

19 miles.
Report:
An enthusiastic and large group gathered for the last Tuesday 2* ride of the season. A big welcome to Olga riding with us for the first time (although it seems there were some nice cross-over connections from the running club!).

Thanks also to Roger for leading a second group on those sections of the route that warranted it. Everything went very smoothly, except for an encounter with a very aggressive motorist north of Pusey.

We took a little detour into the centre of Hinton Waldrist and (just) managed to resist popping down to Duxford ford or taking the bridleway across to the back of Littlemore - we'll save those for another time!

The crossing of the A420 bridge at Southmoor was nice and easy and we enjoyed the smooth tarmac down to West Hanney before heading for Grove in the gathering gloom.

A very enjoyable end to the Tuesday season!
