Offroad Sunday Morning ride May 2016

Sun 22 May 2016 - 10:00am

This ride starts at the top of Gramps Hill, where it crosses the Ridgeway. Grid Ref 370840

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.

The rides will be about 20 miles, mostly off-road, and aim to finish in time for a late lunch (whether together or heading for home). We adjust the ride to suit the riders and the weather, but in general the terrain will be rough, so a mountain-bike in good condition and with knobbly tyres is recommended.

Nick Stokell will lead this ride.  Meet at top of Gramps Hill (just south of Letcombe Bassett), but if you are arriving by car I suggest you park at the top of Hackpen Hill (Grid Ref 343851) then ride East along Ridgeway to the start.
 
22 mile loop with fine views, with some climbing but nothing too technical. Options to shorten route depending on the weather etc.
