Wantage Winter Warmer

2012_02_11-Ridgeway-Snow-277-s

8am Covingham (by the co-op) – 40 miles
9am Foxhill (Ridgeway) – 25 miles

10am White Horse, Uffington (NT car park) – 15 miles

Tom Scott will be leading this classic MB Swindon ‘cafe’ ride. Destination is the cafe at the Court Hill Centre just off the Ridgeway above Wantage where you will have the opportunity to buy hot beverages, snacks and cake!

There are 3 start points which gives everyone a choice of distances. The section from White Horse to Wantage and back will be ‘Novice Friendly’ and will be run at a slower pace than the rest of the ride.

Bring spares and food. It can be very cold and windy up on the Ridgeway and the ground conditions may be treacherous (ice, wet chalk, deep mud etc) so please ensure that you and your bike are prepared.

    Hi guys,
    I did the Scott Marathon route around Wantage in Aug, is this a similar sort of thing? Do i need to advise anyone of which distance i fancy?

    Thanks

    Hi Chris, this is just a club ride, so no race numbers or timing, just turn up at one of the start points and sign in! 8am at Covingham, 9am at Foxhill or 10am at White Horse. Distances are (approx) 38, 25 and 15 miles respectively

    Hi,
    …are you sure that is Prior’s court….not Court Hill?
    I am not a member of the club but I would like to tag along – is that OK?

    Ooops, you’re right. It should have said Court Hill. Have fixed it now.

    Yes, you’re welcome to come on one or two rides as a guest before joining.
