1* Saturday Half Day Ride 1*
Leader:
Des Higgs
Start Time:
1:00 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Monthly 16-32km (10-20 miles) family and social afternoon rides, usually with a tea stop, at a riding pace of 13-16km/h (8-10mph). Occasional short or gentle climbs. This is a pre-bookable ride. To book a place, text your name to the ride leader no earlier than 9:00am on the Sunday before the ride. You will receive confirmation or be advised that the ride is fully booked. A reserve list will be maintained.

This ride is going out to Hinton Waldrist, via Denchworth, Lyford, and Southmoor. We cross the A420 at Southmoor and ride along to Hinton Waldrist. We then cross back over the A420 to Pusey and Gainfield and return via Charney Bassett and Denchworth. Coffee will be at the end back in Grove. About 20 miles and no hills.
Report:
There were 10 riders so we split into two pods with Carin Tranter very kindly leading pod 2. My ride went first, but we had to stop at Southmoor for Michael to buy a bottle of water, so the second pod overtook (no problem).
We took the bridleway from Longworth to Hinton giving wonderful views of Longworth Manor and the Thames valley. Pod 1 went back in the lead after the bridleway, we made good progress back to Grove where a few of us stopped for coffee and cakes purchased from Parsons. We sat on the wall like a row of delinquent teenagers! A very enjoyable ride with problems at all. Thank you everyone.
Distance:
33.80 km (21.00 mi)
