Away Ride - Hungerford

113 km  x6
Ride Category
Louis and Jordan rode over to Hungerford - there were a few spots of rain in the air, but nothing much. After loop of West Berkshire to warm up, we got to the Combe Gibbett climb and descent - no dramas on either. From there on it was a lovely ride through the Hampshire lanes, together with the first diversion of the day at Vernham Dean.

Then up Conholt Hill - this one gives for ever and ever, it seems. Wiltshire was delightful, and we arrived at the Cafe Delight in Tidmarsh bang on lunchtime, for a traditional Corallian Fry-up.

The stretch to Bulford was into a brutal headwind - thank to everyone who did a turn on the front. We then had our second detour of the day, taking us all the way out to Pewsey, where a quick coffee and cake stop saved the day.

Lovely riding and super company, and as a bonus, Corallians have now ridden more km this club year than last... with 6 weeks to go - great effort!
