Description:

***UPPER BRIDGING RIDE***
This is the first of our Bridging Ride series designed to help those who would like to progress to the next level of cycling. As such it will be ridden at the higher end of the pace range.

Weekly 1.5 hour rides at a riding pace of 18-20km/h (11-13mph). Not likely to be very hilly.

We will take this bridging challenge based on a longer distance and a slightly higher speed, rather than lots of hills. So we have a west Vale loop, out via Goosey to Uffington, then across to Fernham followed by the long straight road to Shellingford and Hatford. We finish off through Charney Bassett and back through Denchworth.

21 flat miles - should be fun!
Report:
A strange week of grey skies and lots of rain meant a sense of impending doom as we gathered in slight drizzle. As always on these occasions, you wonder why anyone would come out - but they always do!

In the event, we got a bit lucky and managed to get round without the weather closing in and we stayed dry, although it was pretty cold. Some had dug out their winter clothing, some had stuck with shorts - "it's the summer, after all!"

Des had to dash back to the car to rescue his car keys (or some such dubious excuse) and then he mysteriously reappeared in Uffington buying chips. Still not sure how that worked...

The 3* group decided to do the same route in reverse which as a fun idea as we crossed over exactly on half way.

Thanks to all for braving the conditions!
