CTC Oxfordshire Explorer Ride – Wallingford
Sun 1 June 2014 - 10:00am
Wallingford Market Place
A good turnout of 11 for the 2nd Explorer ride, which was excellently led by Dan Hart from CTC Wallingford. The Herb Garden at Sonning Common proved a most attractive lunch venue.
Reaching Goring on the way back, the lure of Streatley hill proved too great for Steve and Robin. So taking our leave from the others, up we climbed. Making good use of low gears, we conquered it, and then after regaining our breath, continued on in the direction of Wantage via Four Points, Compton and the Isleys. Reaching Farnborough, the thought of a cup of tea enticed us down to the Saddleback café. Sadly, we arrived just after they’d closed the café (@3:30), but we made up for it with large ice creams instead. We agreed it was good preparation for the rigours of next week’s Century ride.
