Off Road Tuesday Evening Ride 2*
Leader:
Robin Tucker
Start Time:
6:30 am
Start Location:
WMP
Description:
Off-road ride around local tracks, usually about 15 miles. Knobbly tyres required and good lights when it gets dark (‘get you home’ lights in Spring/Autumn). We are keen to welcome new riders and can make recommendations or have spare lights to borrow if you let me know. Dark, cold and wet - we’ll ride in any two. But please let me know if you are coming so I can tell you if we decide to cancel due to really bad weather.
Report:
First ride after the clocks went back, so it was dark from the start. And it rained in the day, so there were plenty of puddles and wet ground, but no rain at night so it wasn't too bad.

We went up Goddards Brook as we've done most of the other ones recently. (Must do Betterton next time). Then down Ice Valley and up the other side so you know this is a long ride! We circled round West Ilsley and up to the Ridgeway again near the A34. Then done at Harwell round the woods and home via the current Sustrans route - which I guess will be changing soon as the new bridge is installed over Ginge Brook, although not fully connected and open.

20 miles in all on a dark evening is quite a long one!
Distance:
32.19 km (20.00 mi)
