Annual Mince Pie Ride to Uffington

Sunday, 12 December 2021 - 9:00am

Note earlier start for this ride

It’s our annual ride to White Horse Hill for mince pies and mulled wine. A long stretch to coffee with a climb over Boars Hill and a hard climb to the top of White Horse Hill before mulled wine and mince pies. Like many local clubs, we will join Cycling UK Wantage’s annual festive ride in support of the Whiz-Kidz charity. Make it more of an event by adding Antlers and/or tinsel to you or your bike.

Ride report

We left Broad Street promptly at 9 to enable to get to the car park at Uffington Hill in time for the Mince Pies and Mulled wine. This was in aid of the annual fundraising by Wantage CUK for whizz kids. We were only slightly delayed by Johb S getting a puncture. There were lots of cyclists there with the opportunity to catch up with friends from other clubs. We then cycled on to Faringdon where we were warmly welcomed by the staff of the Bell.
