Tuesday Evening 4* Ride 4*
Leader:
Frank Schroer
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:

Weekly 1.5 - 2 hours ride at a riding pace of 25-29km/h (16-18mph). May be hilly.

Basic route as per GPS file which can be extended with 1 or 2 climbs up to the ridgeway towards the end -from Sparsholt and/or Court hill depending on progress. Keen to finish before it is getting too dark though, certainly if it is a dull day, so will decide during the ride and people can miss out on the potential add-ons and go straight back if they want (as long as we know they do!)
Riders:

Riders = 5

Weather:
sunny intervals
Report:
5 riders started in better weather than initially forecasted. The planned route started as good as flat until Fawler Hill where we got in good time so it was decided to add the 2 optional hills for those that wanted this. This got us in Wantage just as the sun was setting and allowed to see champions league history being made.
Distance:
45.00 km (27.96 mi)
