Regular Wantage Ride 3*
Leader:
Jan McCabe
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:

Description:

A shorter 3 star ride as it's winter. The morning is a little lumpy as we go over to Lambourn and then on to Ramsbury, across to Ogbourne St George and on to Chieseldon for Lunch at Three Trees farm shop. By lunch we will have done half the mileage and almost all the climbing! Just one ascent after lunch to warm us up and then a descent to the Vale, returning vis Bourton, Longcot, Charney.
Hopefully back before dark, but please bring lights in case we have delays
Riders:
Amanda Seddon

Paul Bentley
Riders = 5
Report:
A gentle pace as we rode over several hills to lunch at Three Trees, we were lucky as they were busy with tables booked for christmas lunches, but a table left just as we arrived, and the notice saying 30 minutes wait turned out to be wrong! I think our food arrived in less than 5 minutes!
The after lunch ride was flat, and the group decided to split in Longcot, with Des, Karl and Amanda deciding to have an impromtu tea stop at Des's. Paul and I decided we'd continue on to make sure of getting back in good daylight. Later heard that the second group also returned just before the light faded and before the rain started
Distance:
80.00 km (49.71 mi)
