Regular Saturday Ride from Grove
Jan McCabe
Start Time:
1:00 pm
Start Location:
Plan is to go out via Lains Barn, Ardington onto Ginge, and use the National Cycle Network route through to Harwell (i.e some off road, but on reasonable quality track) then onto Chilton and through Hagbourne, skirting the edge of Didcot, through Harwell village, to tea at Q Gardens, returning via Steventon, Hanney and Denchworth - fairly flat and not too far (27 miles)

Riders = 20
The ride followed the planned route (above), with an excellent turn out with 21 riders, including newcomer Kathrin.
Shortly after we left Grove it started raining, and by the time we got to the far end of Lain's barn most of us had stopped to put waterproofs on, this did the trick, causing the rain to stop shortly afterwards and stay dry for the rest of the ride.
We just about filled the conservatory at Q Gardens, but all got served in reasonable time with our drinks and cakes, other cyclists get arriving, turned out the tea room was also being used as a stop on a 200k Audax - hope we hadn't eaten all of the cakes!
Arrived back in Grove just before lights were needed
