Tuesday Evening 2* Ride 2*
Leader:
John Tranter
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:

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

I think it's about time we went out and conquered Uffington White Horse Hill. It really has to be done at least once in the 2* Tuesday season and I feel the time is right. So - direct routing via Goosey and Baulking to Uffington, through the village and up the big hill - as simple as that! The views from the top are glorious and the remarkable scenery on the way up past Dragon Hill is stunning. So tell yourself that a few minutes effort will be well worthwhile. After the glorious descent, probably the same direct route back.

Around 20 miles. Go on - you know you want to!
Report:
This was the BIG ONE for the 2* group. Always hard to know who will be brave enough to give it a go - quite a few, as it turned out! Well done to everyone for taking the challenge. The route out was straightforward and the Hill loomed ever larger as we got closer (I don't think that helps...)

After the warm up climb out of the village (which didn't seem to trouble anyone much), we all set off up the main climb past Dragon Hill. Frankly, everyone smashed it! Great efforts, big smiles at the top and some good photos. Even the car drivers who followed us up got into the spirit of the thing and offered to take a group photo. The descent was fun as always and we set a good pace back across the Vale.

Thanks to all for great company and a great effort.
