Sociable leisure rides for enthusiastic cyclists
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).
Starting from Benson, free parking on St Helen's Avenue, this is a hilly figure of eight through the Chiltern Hills and presents a decent climbing challenge. Includes six respectable climbs where the usual regrouping at the top will take place. Lunch stop after 54km at Coffee on the Green, Stokenchurch. Probable late cake stop after 83km at The Spire & Spoke, Watlington at the foot of the last and most challenging climb (avoidance is possible if you bring a note from your mum).8:16 pm
