Away-day ride to Brightwalton and Wickham

Sunday, 14 April 2019 - 10:00am

Away-day ride, starting 10am The Ridgeway Car Park
Please book lunch before 6pm Friday

Main details

An away-day ride meandering round the quiet roads of the North Wessex Downs AONB, just north of Newbury. 800m of ascent over a relatively short distance, so quite hilly.

Ride report

The rider who caught us up as we were leaving coffee had driven to the wrong car park. His penance was to miss out somewhat on the coffee, cakes and chat.  Despite the cold east wind, it was a lovely ride with very little traffic and some great roads.
