Off-road ride – East of Wallingford

Sat 16 August 2014 - 10:00am

Ride start: “Goblin’s Glen” – Old London Road, 2 miles East of Wallingford (see link)

The third of our monthly off-road rides for those who like their rides bumpy and (sometimes) muddy.  This one is on the third rather than the second Saturday of the month as I’m on holiday the week before.  Most will work their way up the western edge of the Chilterns.  
 
They will be about 20 miles mostly off-road and aim to finish in time for a late lunch (whether together or heading for home).
 
The terrain will be rough, so a mountain-bike in good condition and with knobbly tyres is recommended.

Ride report

As well as John and I, my brother Dave came on this one. He lives in California, so is a bit spoilt for good trails. But he still enjoyed it immensely!



We did a trimmed down version of my 27 miles ‘best of the Chilterns’. Only a few miles less, but with two big climbs taken out. The trails were in great shape – not muddy, not dusty, and a great time was had by all.
