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

** WEATHER UPDATE, Tuesday lunchtime**
Clearly, it's going to be HOT, HOT, HOT this evening! Let's see how it feels at the start and who is in the group, but at the moment I am thinking about cutting out the main climb and dropping down into Childrey instead.

***UPPER BRIDGING RIDE***
This is the second 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.

This will be high end 2* in two ways - a little bit faster on the average speed and a little bit of a hill in Hackpen! But - it will still be fun, promise...

Out via the edge of Wantage and the Letcombes, we climb Hackpen and then immediately drop down to Sparsholt and the run along to Kingston Lisle. We have another nice descent then before the final run back through Goosey and Denchworth.
Report:
Fairly obviously, it was HOT! Good group though, energised by the leader's decision not to do Hackpen Hill. All the rest of the route was fine though - Holborn Hill polished off nicely and then all enjoyed the big swoop down from Kingston Lisle.

Thanks to all for your company!
