Stephanie Haddrell
Start Time:
10:30 am

Description:
Social Family ride approximately 14 miles, with a cafe stop, at a riding pace of (7 -10 mph). Please check website on the morning of the ride if the weather is poor as it may be cancelled or the start time changed. This week's is a flat circular route from Old Mill Hall Grove out via Denchworth and Charney Bassett to Stanford for a well earned hot drink and cake at the cafe before returning via Park lane and Denchworth to Grove. A repeat of the 22 August Family ride. Layers, wind/waterproof top, and gloves essential to keep warm. For regular riders or those wanting a longer ride there is an option to extend the ride via Longworth and Buckland.
Report:
After early reports of rain for this weeks ride it was a pleasure to wake to bright sunshine, perfect conditions for the last family ride of the year, and the first of the new season!
We had a healthy turn out of 14 riders including 3 youngsters Lizzie, Joshua and Ellie Hollick accompanied by mum Jude who joined us for their third ride. We decided to split into two groups at the start with Joshua, and Lizzie setting the pace for the first group, and Ellie on her new bike with gears, and Jude riding with the second. We met at Charney Bassett green for a photo and refreshments, at which point Joshua, having cooled down decided it perhaps was a good idea to adorn his fleece! John, Susan and Patrick took this opportunity to extend the ride and headed out to Longworth before joining us at Stanford for coffee and cake. Following a lovely social break and wonderful refreshments at Stanfod Cafe conditions remained favourable for the rest of the ride. In all a very enjoyable ride, with great company!
Special thanks to Des, and Carin for leading and to Di and Roger for sweeping!
