Description:

Weekly 1.5 hour rides at a riding pace of 18-20km/h (11-13mph). Not likely to be very hilly.
Optional sociable stop at The Fox, Denchworth after the ride.
Out and back via Denchworth, to West Challow and up to A417, down to Letcombe Regis and up to Letcombe Bassett. down to Childrey and then along to Kingston Lisle and then heading back to Denchworth to the pub. 19 miles to the pub and 21 miles back to Grove
Report:
Quite a small group and a sunny evening. I was immediately told the route was too long as should be in te he pub by 8, so
shortened it by about 2 miles. Out via Denchworth and then left to reach the A415 for a short stretch ant through West Hanney. At the top of the hill we re-grouped and then right down to Childrey, right again and then a wiggle through to Kingston Lisle. Lovely downhill to Baulking and then heading back to Denchworth to the pub. Only to find that the speedy (and shorter route) 3* had got there before us.
thanks to Roger for being the Sweeper.
