A ride towards the spritely end of easy, but enjoyed by all. We headed out to Denchworth and Charney Bassett and then along to Hatford. The road from Hatford to the A420 was a little busy with cars, but still the perfect rolling road where not too much effort was required.
A short stint on the A420 and then through Littleworth and Thrupp to Faringdon.

Onwards to Fernham with a quick consensus to lenghten the ride as long as we were back into Grove before the Cornerstone Cafe closed, so we went from Fernham through to Shellingford, back to Hatford and then into the wind to Charney Bassett, Denchworth and Grove.

As ever, the Cornerstone Cafe were most accomodating (especially as they thought they were going to close early!) for well deserved tea and cake (and the biggest scones you have ever seen.)

45km in total over 2hours and 20 minutes.
