Tuesday evening 1* Ride 1*
Leader:
Lorna Swanton
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Our leisurely and sociable 10-mile club rides are designed specifically with adult newcomers to cycling and youngsters in mind, or those who just want some relaxed and sociable exercise. We cover a distance of about 10 miles at a gentle pace of 8-10 mph, following quiet country lanes and the occasional easy off-road track. We stop regularly to catch our breath, to take in the views and anything that takes our interest along the way.

A trip to Childrey Pond this evening heading out via Stockham and East Challow and back via Goosey and Denchworth, a round trip of just over 12 miles. There is a short climb to test our gears through East Challow. Then, after a rest, we'll continue along the bridleway to Childrey, which affords a great panorama along the Downs and over the Vale. From Childrey there is a nice descent to enjoy on lovely tarmac to Challow station before a short stretch along the A417 to Goosey where we rejoin the lanes back to Grove.

Report:
A select group of 5 riders headed out along quiet roads of Grove and cycle paths of Wantage, up to Stockham then over to East Challow, where we climbed up to the bridleway to Childrey. Avoiding the poo and potholes, we enjoyed the panoramic view along the Downs and over the Vale, and paused to watch the ducks at Childrey Pond. All very leisurely and sociable! We upped the pace to swoop down the hill to Challow station, then along the A417 to Goosey, rejoining the lanes back to Denchworth and Grove. Nice to see Robert on his first ride this year.
Distance:
19.31 km (12.00 mi)
