1* Mince Pie Ride 1*
Leader:
Steve Swanton
Start Time:
9:45 am
Start Location:
WMP
Description:
Our annual festive ride, which again is in aid of Whizz-Kidz, the children's mobility charity.

Ride out with us to the NT car park at White Horse Hill, Uffington, for mince pies and mulled wine. For full details of the event see the "Annual Mince Pie Ride" entry.

Meeting from 9:45 for a 10:00 start, the 1* ride will be a sociable ride at a leisurely pace leaving after the other groups. Please arrive at least 10 minutes beforehand to register.

The 1* ride will follow the most direct route (about 8 miles) along the foot of the Downs through East Challow on to Childrey (via the track and bridleway), Sparsholt, Westcot and Kingston Lisle. There are some ups and downs along the B4507 before we reach the foot of Dragon Hill. Everyone will be able to have a go at cycling up. Even if you get off and push, it's worth it for the fantastic views over the Manger and the Vale below. We'll drop down into the main NT car park to join the other groups for mince pies and mulled wine.

There will be a led ride retracing our tyre tracks back to Wantage after the meet.
