Report:
Neil W rather fittingly led 18 riders on a circuitous journey across the Vale to the Lamb & Flag at Southmoor. More by luck than planning this was the number of riders on the first ride. The press pack outside the unfortunate Dr Kellys' house was sobering but a fine lunch lifted the spirits. Quite how 10 years ago we took 1 1/2 hours to get to Southmoor has faded with time but this time we curved out to Lockinge to try and fill the time. We took in nearly every road between Grove and Denchworth and a couple of bridleways. The bridleway from Southmoor due south to a minor east /west lane needs more use, perhaps some trail breaking off roaders would bash down the nettles for the more delicate roadies? Post lunch we wound our way west through Kingston Beauchamp and over the White Horse. While so close it seemed churlish not to have tea with the fine ladies of Uffington. Splendid as always. A gentle potter at the foot of the downs took us home to Wantage. The museum had sadly closed for more teas but the 10th anniversary ride didn't touch Denchworth a cause for amusement if nothing else.
