Sociable leisure rides for enthusiastic cyclists
Fourth Sunday – A morning ride starting from Wantage especially aimed at welcoming new riders to the club. The ride will be Blue grade and may include a refreshment stop en route or at the end of the ride. Expect to be back around 12:00.
Don't forget - the clocks will have just changed!
A very pleasant ride out to Clanfield via Littleworth with a tea stop at the brilliant Bampton Garden Centre Cafe.
Ideal for anyone wanting to try out this great new cycling club or an enjoyable chilled and sociable ride for existing members. All are welcome!
This ride is fairly flat with only one gentle gradient up to the Corallian on the way out and a short climb up to Buckland after the tea stop. The ride will get back to Wantage around noon.
The ride starts at Alfreds Statue 9:00 am and a very warm welcome to all.
No ride tonight as the clocks have gone forward and the summer season starts next week.
Instead we are meeting in the pub to discuss the coming season of rides as we look forward to longer and warmer days.
Join us for a drink and a natter and food as well if you wish!
This is a route check ride for the Harlequin Hack ride on 9th April and for all those who are helping on the day but would like to ride the route. Or for anyone else who would like to come along including those who want to do it twice!!
If you wish to ride it as a validated audax event you will need to enter the audax in the normal fashion online at Audax UK and help on the 9th April at the actual running of the event, either as a controller or at event HQ. But everyone is welcome to ride, entry is not required.
The ride starts and ends at the Thomas Hughes Memorial Hall in Uffington at the slightly later than normal time of 9.30am. The ride is 110km but not particularly tough as audax routes go. It gets a red rating for distance and there are a few hills.
We will be route checking along the way (which mainly involves making sure signposts aren't missing) and using the controls used the following week for refreshment stops.
Summer Wednesday – Weekly evening ride from Wantage at either Blue or Red grade, which will complete before sunset. We will have a variety of paces and terrains across the summer season.7:46 pm
A modest excursion into the Cotswold hills followed by a gentle wander through the watery lanes of the upper Thames, the Evenlode and the Windrush.
The ride starts and ends at the Thomas Hughes Memorial Hall in Uffington which has a village shop adjacent. Food and drink available at the start/finish and included in the entry fee.
Pre-entry for this audax event is preferred. The cost is £5.50 and can be completed online at Audax UK.
