A bit hillier (but shorter) this week heading South through Lambourn to Ermin Street. After the charge down back into Lambourn there's the gentle bucolic climb up Sheepdrove and back through Letcombe. As usual the possibility/probability of a liquid re-fuel at the end.

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.

This route is always a favourite near mid-summer. One of the longer evening routes we do it's pretty flat but includes a climb up Boar's Hill to see the dreaming spires of Corallian limestone hopefully lit up in the evening sunshine.

First Sunday – An all-day ride starting from Wantage. The ride will be Blue or Red grade and include lunch and maybe other refreshment stops - expect to be be back by 17:30 (or 30 minutes before sunset during winter months).

An opportunity to ride an imperial century (100 miles, 160km) which is an achievement everyone should tick off in their cycling career!

I've deliberately made this pretty easy, it only comes in at 0.6x hilly, so the emphasis is on distance not hills. It's classified as red for the distance only, not hilliness or speed.

We head west to Highworth and Ashton Keynes to brunch which will be at the Malmesbury garden centre. The furthest point west will be near Tetbury, before returning via Cirencester and Bibury to Lechlade where we will take an afternoon break. From here it's the usual run back to Wantage via Bampton and Buckland. There will be other opportunities for short breaks (e.g. ice creams) as and when required :)

We'll take this at a relaxed audax/touring pace so everyone can enjoy the achievement and we should be back in Wantage late afternoon (I'm estimating around 5 to 6pm).
