  • Medium Pace to Midgham Lock

    Tuesday 07 July 2020 09:30 - 17:00

    Lockdown Small Group Rides

    This is a 50-mile ride at around 11-13mph. Due to the Covid 19 restrictions the ride is limited to six riders.

    I am investigating places to stop. There are three pubs around Midgham, and the Coach and Horses seems to offer a takeaway service. It may also have open loos! I will investigate further by the weekend and send an e-mail out to those involved along with a gpx file. It may be that nothing sensible re food and loos is available so come prepared. There are nice areas to stop at Woolhampton and Hannington.

    The forecast is currently quite good for Tuesday. Of course, bring the usual tools etc

    To book a place on the ride contact Martyn Wilson via this form.

    This ride is now fully booked
