CTC Oxfordshire Explorer Ride – Hungerford

Sun 31 August 2014 - 1:00pm

Hungerford Town Hall

A cheeky little route of 62 km, lots of bailout opportunities and distinct climbs on the first half and undulations on the second part, stopping at the Crofton Pumping Station for tea after 40 km. 2* pace, 3* “scenery”. 4 hours-ish of riding time, back to Hungerford by 18:00.

Start 13:00 at Hungerford Town Hall. Best free parking at Hungerford Station.

Windmills, steam engines, Leverton cottages, climbs, descents – all we’ll need is the weather.

It was hard to resist the temptations of Walbury Hill, Marridge Hill and Spring Hill….

Ride report

A great afternoon to be out on the bike and a thoroughly enjoyable ride exploring some new corners of West Berkshire and into Hampshire.  Many thanks to Chris for designing and leading an excellent route and to Richard for sweeping.  Follow the link via the red button to read Chris’s report on the CTC Wantage website.
