Sunday 8th December: Wantage CTC Mince Pie Ride to White Horse Hill

On behalf of CTC Wantage, you are invited to join us on our annual festive ride from Wantage to Uffington White Horse Hill, which again is in aid of Whizz Kidz, the children’s mobility charity. This year the date is Sunday 8th December.

Guests and other cycling clubs are very welcome to join us at Wantage Market Place at 9.45-10am for the start of the rides or join us at White Horse Hill NT car park (grid ref SU 293866) from 11.15 to 12.00 for mince pies and mulled wine. All proceeds on the day will go to Whizz Kidz.

We will have road rides at 1*, 2* and 3* grades and an off-road ride – see separate ride entries on our website (www.ctcwantage.org.uk) for route details. This is a very popular event, so please arrive in good time for registration. There will be a short briefing at 10 am. The 3* and off-road rides will set off soon after, the 2* ride 5 mins after that and the 1* at about 10:15.

Afterwards the rides will continue to The Black Horse in East Hanney for a pub lunch (at 13:00). There will also be a ride directly back to Wantage.

It would greatly help our planning if you could give us some advance notice of likely numbers. In particular, if you would like to join us for the lunch then you need to let us know for numbers ASAP. Please contact Steve Boreham at promotions@ctcwantage.org.uk.
