Tuesday Evening 3* Ride 3*
Leader:
Nicole Pethybridge
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:

Weekly 1.5 - 2 hours at a riding pace of 20-24km/h (13-15mph). May be hilly.

A quirky little ride anticlockwise round the vale going out through Denchworth and Goosey, heading towards Baulking and then turning to go through Kingston Lisle. From there up to Sparsholt Firs. Descending through the Letcombes back to Grove.

Jo Little Secondary Ride Leader
Report:
What a lovely evening to be out riding was the echo around the lanes as 16 riders in two groups took an more unusual turn around the vale.(sun)
Heading to Denchworth seemed normal enough and then we did a reverse loop through Goosey, Baulking and Kingston Lisle just to warm us up.

I led the first group and Jane the second. However we weren't far away from the 2* riders who crossed us from the opposite direction at the bottom of blowing stone. I even managed to surprise myself with the route :o as we dropped into Sparsholt before making our way up to Sparsholt Firs. Whilst the climb was steady with a sting in its tail the views and evening air was wondrous and rewarded with the swoop down Chain Hill.
Everyone remarked how different a route is done in the opposite direction and the winding roads through the Letcombs proved that.

With many in the first group returning from injury or illness and the second group ably navigated as a duo, rally car style with Yvonne calling out instructions to Jo, much was achieved in a short sunny ride.
Thanks to the sweeps Jane and David for their support and everyone else for a happy ride :).
