Regular Wantage Ride 3*
Leader:
Eddie Little
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:
Wantage Market Place
Description:

All-day touring ride (80-100km / 50-65 miles), lunch and possibly tea stop en route, at a riding pace of 18-22km/h (11-14mph). Not suitable for irregular riders. Climbing almost inevitable.

We will go along the spring line to Ashbury and then through Aldbourne to Chilton Foliat, up to Great Shefford and then onto Boxford where we will have lunch at The Bell. We will then go through Winterbourne, Chieveley, Worlds End and Hampstead Norreys before East and West Ilsley and the lovely finish down Chain Hill.
Unfortunately Saddleback Farm is closed on Easter Day, so please make sure you bring enough energy bars/food/drink to get you back to Wantage.

Please could you let Jo or Eddie know if you want to come, as we have to give The Bell at Boxford a rough idea of numbers. However, please do not let that stop you turning up on the day - we can always fit extras in.

99.5km ride with 1095m of climbing. The ride will be taken at an average 3* pace and, as always, we will regroup at the top of each hill.
Report:
We had a hot sunny day for the ride and everyone enjoyed the beautiful scenery. One of the highlights of the day was when 5 red kites flew up from just in front of us.
We kept up a brisk pace throughout, which resulted in a lot of PB's on strava and some tired legs by the end of the ride.
Thank you to Terry for providing the support car service and being the official photographer for the day.
Thank you to everyone for being such a good group to ride with.
Distance:
99.50 km (61.83 mi)
