Description:
Our annual festive ride, which again is in aid of Whizz-Kidz, the children's mobility charity.

Secondary ride leader, Jo Little.

We'll head out of Wantage passing through the Letcombes,
then we'll have a nice descent into Childrey, from this point the ride becomes flat & we'll pass through some nice villages, Sparsholt, Westcot, Kingston Lisle, Baulking, Fernham, Longcot & Woolstone. From Woolstone we'll have our first short but sharp climb up to the spring Line, turning left then right & head for our big climb, Dragon Hill!! (sweat)

ETA for White Horse Hill car park, 11:20am. This is where we'll all indulge in mulled wine & mince pies. ;) + catch-up with old friends!

Ride distance, 33km/ 20mi/ Route Checked.
Please arrive at least 10 minutes before the departure time
for regerstration + briefing! Ride departs 09:30am.

I will be leading a ride back via Baulking & Goosey, stopping at the Fox at Denchworth for our Christmas dinner, those who are not dining with us can carry on through to Grove & Wantage.

The weather can be a little unpredictable at this time of year, so this route may change or the ride cancelled! So please keep an eye on this website & Facebook on the day of this ride for updates! Look forward in seeing you on the ride,Ed. (hi)
Report:
An excellent turn out for this ride, 23 riders. 17 from our club
and 6 guest riders, CTC & Abingdon Wheeler's. Tony Long
Andy Pope, Andy Raturidge, Mary Jane Hicks, Morris - Allsworth & Thomas Hardcastle. Thank you all for joining us on this ride. Hope to see you all next year! We ran two groups for this ride with Jo leading the second group & Jane
& Yvonne acting as sweeps. We were lucky that the sun was shining, but we all had to contend with a very strong head wind which proved to be very testing for all of us!!Hats off to all riders. We all arrived at the White Horse NT car park in good time to enjoy Carins home made mulled wine & some very tasty mince pies. We all made our way through to the Fox at Denchworth where 30 of us enjoyed a festive meal. Many thanks to Jo for being secondary leader & many thanks to Jane & Yvonne for sweeping.


Happy Christmas & have a fantastic new year! hopefully see you on a ride next year, Ed. (hi)
