Wednesday Evening Ride

40 km  x10

Eleven riders tonight including Paul Jarvis joining us, good to see you Paul!

A warm, mainly overcast but bright evening, a few glimpses of the Sun. We took the rarely cycled lumpy route to the Letcombes which made a nice and quieter change from the usual route. We all took Hackpen at our own pace and enjoyed the run down to Lambourn.

A sharp turn up Sheepdrove to regain the lost altitude and everyone seemed to enjoy the mostly traffic free route over the downs.

A drop to Sparsholt, a spirited dash down from Childrey and we returned to Wantage via Circourt Road and Denchworth. The road through Wantage was closed for resurfacing so we had to use the shared path and had a good view of the machinery tearing up the road surface. We can look forward to a smoother journey down there next time!

All finished off with a (beer) in the KAH just as the Sun was setting. Perfect :)
