3* SUNDAY Half Day Ride 3*
Eddie Little
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:
Half day ride (60-70km / 38-45 miles), with a tea stop, riding pace of 20-24km/h (13-15mph). Likely to visit distant destinations. Not suitable for irregular riders. Climbing likely.

*** Due to heavy rain on Saturday this Sunday ride has been added to allow riders to take advantage of the better weather ***

As this is the start of the autumn & winter half day rides, I thought it would be nice to take advantage of the fine weather & stretch our legs.
We will head out via Denchworth, passing through Charney-Bassett, Hatford, Longcot, Compton- Beauchamp, up Ashbury Hill, down through the Lambourn Valley, Great-Shefford, from there we will head up past Woolly House, onto the B4494 to our tea stop at SaddleBack Farm.
Once we are all refreshed, we will head down the famous
Chain Hill for home.

Ride Distance 43.7mi/70km. Ride pace of (13-15)mph.
We will wait for each other at the top of the hills!
This ride takes around 4 hours, that includes our tea stop!
A lovely morning to cycle with a turn out of eight riders!
The roads were fairly quiet throughout the ride.
Everyone managed the hills very well.

En route we passed three of our fellow club members enjoying the fine weather.
Olivia was turning out one of her horses, Karl & Des were enjoying a cycle ride.

Yvonne had a small mechanical resulting in her chain coming off the front ring & jamming.
The problem was soon resolved with some useful advice from Terry.

SaddleBack Farm was fairly busy, but once we had ordered our food it was quick to arrive!
Yvonne & Sharon decided to go straight back to Wantage as they had afternoon engagements.
Once we were all refreshed, Jenny & Terry headed out towards the Ilsleys leaving the four of us to return home.
Thankyou to everyone for being such a friendly & easy group to lead, thanks to Terry for sweeping!(clap)
