Tue May 28th 2019
Tuesday Evening 3* Ride 3*
Leader:
Katherine Boyce
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.

As it's pub night, a straightforward trip out to Faringdon via Fernham and back via Hatford and Charney, so just the one small hill :). I'll probably park at Denchworth, so you will need ot make your own way back to Old Mill Hall.

Optional sociable stop at The Fox, Denchworth after the ride.
Report:
As I remember it this was a glorious evenings cycling with near perfect weather: a tail wind whenever needed and no head wind :). However my extremely witty and interesting first report got lost in the ether so instead of that, you get this!

Yvonne did sterling work as the secondary ride leader and Eddie Little kindly was back marker and host to our first time rider.

Dave Tallboys kindly swept for our group.

I think both Yvonne and I agreed that there were no ride leader duties with either of our groups, even when one of the Faringdon roads were shut!

I had deleted my riders list and am certain I have not got all the riders, so please just shout and I'll add you.
Distance:
