‘Fawkes a lot!’ is two rides in one. The 16 mile, Novice Friendly loop, will cover parts of the Ridgeway and other bridleways and byways in the area. It’s nearly all gravel, but there will be a few unsurfaced parts to ride. A few climbs but nothing too taxing.
If you fancy covering more miles then there is the option of meeting Phil Allum to start the ride from Coate Water Country Park instead which will add another 12 or so miles onto the ride total. We will be leaving Coate Water at 9am sharp, and taking a brisk ride to Barbury to pick up the others before heading out across the downs.
Please bring drinks/snacks as there will not be any shops or cafes on this ride.
Hope to see you there!
