The welcome ride lived up to its name today, as we welcomed me as ride leader, Dave Godfrey as a new member and Joy Arthur.
After climbing Hackpen Hill we were rewarded with great views of the Lambourn valley while descending via Sheepdrove. another climb out of Eastbury saw us on to the B4000 just so we could descend back into Lambourn via Baydon road.
Excellent timing for the café stop ( if I do say so myself ) saw us watered and fed before the onrush of other cyclists
Back to Wantage via Sevenbarrows at a perfect and social pace. Thanks to all for a very enjoyable ride.
