Offroad Novices Sunday morning ride April 2016

Sun 24 April 2016 - 10:00am

Starts in Steventon. See ride details on CTC Wantage website (link below).

Twice monthly off-road ride for those who like their rides bumpy and (sometimes) muddy. These will be on the 2nd Saturday afternoons and 4th Sunday mornings.

This one is a special ride for those beginning off-roading, or wanting to learn a bit more, with a 'teach in' and a short but pleasant ride. This was well received last year, with some important learnings about tyre pressures. (And Dave Talboys demonstrated how to fix a puncture!)

We'll start at my house with a bike check, and check out tyre pressures and suspension settings. (There should be enough car parking on my drive).
 
Second we'll do a 2 mile loop up Steventon Hill and back down, which provides a chance to learn the key off-road skills for climbing, descending and going down singletrack in the woods like a Jedi.
 
Third, we'll ride a 10-mile loop up to The Ridgeway and back to sample a bigger climb and a bigger descent and put all those skills into practice.
 
Start: 97 The Causeway, Steventon. OX13 6SJ
