Regular Wantage Ride
Leader:
Ginny Henderson
Start Time:

Description:
Regular Wantage Ride. A full day ride of 80 to 100km, this will be a cultural visit to Eastleach Martin/Turvile churches (briefly )and to Fairford's 13 century church(longer stop) to admire the world famous medieval stain glass windows . we will take a circuitous route there to get the miles in and return prob via Coleshill, I suggest a picnic lunch to make the most of the time. Those not interested in the church could lunch at the Bull/Plough/ 8 Bells or Railway Hotel/pubs.

Report:
13 Sept 2006 .Sunday ride from Wantage to Fairford by way of deviations and distractions!
We had a good ride out, a nice stop where I gather a good lunch was had by the pub faction and a slightly more tiring ride home when I have to say we weakened and had tea at Uffington . Ride organisers please note that the good ladies of Uffington might make tea for us (or soup) if they know we are definitely coming during the winter if we negotiate with them. We were blessed with lovely weather and fine views .My reason for going to Fairford was to have a chance to see the fabulous stain glass windows in the church, I am sorry to say that despite having 18 riders out only 4 took advantage of the church and picnic option. We rode 57 miles at 13.7 mph, it was great to see Lee Wright who is our youngest rider (15) doing extremely well, rather better than a few more seasoned riders in fact!!Well done Lee.
