Saturday Half Day Ride 2* Add to Calendar
Contact:
Sara Ward - 07900 911201
Start Time:
1:00 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Half day ride (45-55km / 30-40 miles), with a tea stop, at a riding pace of 18-20km/h (11-13mph). Not likely to be very hilly. Might be a struggle for new or irregular riders in winter months.

A loop from Grove around the Vale returning to Wantage with the chance to view the Letcombes from a slightly different direction.

Predominately flat with a couple of rises towards the end, we will take this 40km at a good 2* pace. The ride will finish with tea in the Market Place so those with time constraints can press on if need be.

Light should be better by late February but day running lights still recommended in case it's overcast.
