We'll start along Grim's Ditch - a brilliant mile of singletrack built by the Vikings (Grim is a name for Odin). Then we'll hammer up the hills like Thor and ride down like Valkyries. Or something. Actually, this may be a bit more of an IKEA ride, because I will assemble it as we go along depending on the group and weather to maximise the enjoyment for all 😉 General…

August's ride will be led by David Yearley.  I'm not sure exactly of his plans, but I reckon the Ridgeway and hence some great views will figure in it.  A moderately paced ride, not a scorcher (although we hope for good weather!) General description: Monthly off-road ride for those who like their rides bumpy and (sometimes) muddy on second Saturday mornings. The rides will be about 20 miles, mostly off-road,…

Off-road ride July 2017

Sat 8 July 2017 - 10:00am to 2:00pm
Manor Road, Goring, Manor Road, Goring United Kingdom + Google Map

This is a great ride for twisty singletrack in the woods around Woodcote. Not too much climbing - not none, but a bit less than average, and the two main climbs are quite close to the start of the ride. Also there is are major hazards along the route, as long as you can steer around the trees. That all makes it a route that has proved popular in previous…
