Sociable leisure rides for enthusiastic cyclists
Third Sunday – An all-day ride starting away from Wantage, so you'll need to either ride or drive out to the start point. The ride will be Blue or Red grade and include lunch and maybe other refreshment stops. The ride should finish by 17:00 (or 30 minutes before sunset during winter months).
An away ride from Hungerford Town Hall (park for free at the station car park) taking us into Hampshire.
The main hills are got out of the way relatively early in the ride - Combe Gibbett from Woodhay, and Conholt Hill. From then we can enjoy the vistas from Chute Causeway before descending to the awesome greasy spoon Chef's Delight in Tidworth for lunch.
The afternoon takes us to Netheravon before passing Crofton for a possible ice-cream stop shortly before arriving back at Hungerford.
Overall it's just about worthy of a "hilly" ride rating, but after the first couple of lumps, it's more undulating than tough. We'll ride at a sustainable pace, so everyone is welcome to give it a go.
