1* Saturday Half Day Ride 1* Add to Calendar
Contact:
Steve Swanton - 07857 527990
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.

A gentle loop around the vale with a tea stop at the Bay Tree Cafe in Wantage towards the end of the ride. We'll have one short section along the A417 before turning right to West Challow and then will make use of two tarmacked bridleways with one short potholed section into East Challow. Total distance about 17 miles, but there is a 10-mile option back to Grove for those that would like the opportunity of a shorter ride. Lights recommended.
