Description:
Half day ride (60-70km / 38-45 miles), with a tea stop, riding pace of 20-24km/h (13-15mph). Likely to visit distant destinations. Not suitable for irregular riders. Climbing likely.

This is a pre-bookable ride. To book your place, text your name and preferred ride to Jon Townsin on 07780 676051 no earlier than 9.00am on the Monday before the ride. You will receive confirmation or be advised that the ride is fully booked. A reserve list will be maintained.

We'll head towards Hatford, passing through Shellingford, Longcot, Knighton & Ashbury. From this point we'll climb Ashury Hill. Then we'll have a nice decent through the Lambourn Valley, passing through Great Shefford, Boxford & Brightwalton. We'll stop at Honesty of Saddleback Farm Shop for our tea stop. Saddleback Farm are expecting us! I recently called into Saddleback on one of my rides just to check out the seating arrangements & there is ample seating inside & outside, all very covid friendly!! Once we are all refreshed we'll head for our decent Chain Hill arriving back in Grove for around 13:30 hrs.

Ride distance. 46 mi/ 77km.
Hopefully see you on the ride :D
Report:
A bumper number of riders gathered at Old Mill Hall for this mornings ride. I decided to split the group for safety purposes. Kath very kindly led group 2. Both groups made light work of the first half of the ride. Saddle Back Farm was a good choice for a pit stop. Not to busy & quick service followed by some excellent food & drinks (mm) It was nice to see the fallow deer grazing in the field to the rear of Saddleback. Once refreshed we all enjoyed the wonderful decent of Chain Hill. Many thanks to Kath for leading group 2. Thanks to everyone for joining the ride & making it a fantastic mornings ride. (clap)
