Ben Mitchell will be leading a ride at Greenham Common near Newbury. Previously used as an RAF and USAF airbase in both the Second World War and during the Cold War, and more recently the Star Wars …films!
No longer home to nuclear bombers, there’s a fair bit of fun and interesting single track to take in, and hopefully some interesting history for those that like that sort of thing!
This will follow similar single-track to the first MB Swindon ride that Ben ever went on, way back in June of 2013 (lead by Rafe I believe?).
Most definitely suitable for novices, the route is possibly shorter than most at no more than 25km, with minimal, short climbs. For those that want a bit more, there will be options to repeat bits of the single-track, or to do another loop of Greenham.
The ride will start at the Thatcham Nature Discovery Centre, where there is a free car park and a cafe for those that want to sneak in a pre-ride coffee, or have a bit of cake afterwards.
