Summer Family Ride
Social Family ride of about 9 miles, intended for young riders with their parents/guardians. There will be experienced riders on hand to support and deal with any mechanical problems.We will take the ride nice and slowly, and stop regularly to ensure everyone is happy.
Please meet at Old Mill Hall Grove at 10.15am to allow time to collect consent forms and check safety. Please check website on the morning of the ride if the weather is poor as it may be cancelled or the start time changed.
This week we will leave Old Mill Hall and travel through Grove Main street towards Charlton using the cycle path. We will then pick up the bridleway towards Lockinge making our way through this beautiful horse-racing village. We will continue towards Betterton; look out for the rhinocerous! As we turn left towards Ardington the only hill of the morning will provide some splendid views of the area before a lovely sweep down into the village. Here there will be the option to take a break for snack and refreshments at the village cafe, or for those preferring their own snacks, rest and refreshments at the foot of the Millenium Stones. From here we will retrace our steps for most of the return journey along the bridle way, through Charlton Village and back via cycle paths to Grove. A trip of 9.2 miles.
