Ride went out via Uffington, where we split into two groups with David taking the longer route via Lambourn, whilst I lead the shorter route up White Horse Hill, Mavis and I started of slowly pottering up White Horse Hill to keep Jo company, as it was one of her first Saturday rides, however when she said "please excuse me, but I need to do this at my own pace" and shot off ahead of us, we realised the Jo had definately got the hang of climbing hills!

Both routes went back via Wantage and on to Ardington, where we met up again at the Post Office tea rooms, and were also joined by Richard and Kevin, Wen and Tom - who had decided just to do the cafe and not the cycling! Feeling well refreshed we then completed the final few miles back to Grove
