Saturday 21st December

3 Star road ride – quicker pace. Suitable for experienced riders, may be hilly, long, quick, or any combination!

  • Average speed: 12 -14 mph
  • Distance: 28 miles
  • Start time: 1.30 pm
  • Start location: Wallingford Market Place
  • Ride time: Approx 4 hours including a tea stop
  • Ride leader: John Talbot

It wouldn’t be right to have a ride at this time of year that didn’t go via Christmas Common so that’s what we’ll do. We might even stop off briefly at The Tree Barn to get into the Christmas spirit!

We do need to go up onto the Chiltern ridge to get there (via Britwell Hill) but we’ll have the descent of Aston Hill to make up for it!

Tea-stop will most likely be at The Bread Bin café in Watlington towards the end of the ride.

Lights essential at this time of year (it is the shortest day of the year after all!) and we’ll aim to get back to Wallingford around sunset.

Pay and Display parking available in Goldsmith’s Lane (it is the last Saturday before Christmas so allow time for finding alternative parking if it is busy).
