This is a steady Social ride of around 18 miles.
Starting from – We meet outside Shrivenham primary school at 9.45 before a prompt start at 10.00. There is some free parking but please come by bike if you can.
Our figure of 8 takes to Hinton Parva and then onto Foxhill and along the route of the old Ridgeway to the Three Trees Cafe at Chiseldon. Then we come back via a slightly different route our figure of 8 crosses over in Hinton Parva on our way to Bishopstone.
This is a challenging ride with some climbing as we head off over to the Ridgeway (one of England’s oldest roads). We will only be on tarmac roads as we make our way to Chiseldon.
Quiet country roads with some undulations
We plan to stop at the Three Trees Farm Shop and cafe, a place that is very popular with many local cyclists, so bring some money for refreshments.
For all our rides you should bring at least a spare inner tube and a pump. If your wheels are bolted on then a spanner that fits the nuts is also essential. Helmets are not compulsory but most definitely recommended. You should dress appropriately for the weather, and consider bringing your mobile phone along with cash or card for the coffee stop.
We will always welcome new members to our group. But please note that this is a challenging ride with some climbs so please be prepared for some climbing.
