Ride to Woodford Halse – Sunday 17th June

James Holden is leading this ride and writes:


Start time: 9.30 a.m.
Meeting point: Hunsbury Hill library, Overslade Close, East Hunsbury NN4 0RZ
Distance: 60 Miles
Refreshment stop: Sulgrave or Harley Equestrian Centre
Pace: Steady, average of 13 mph, 16 to 18 mph on the flat


Starting from East Hunsbury we’ll head out in a circuitous fashion towards Fosters Booth. Then it’s on to Woodend, Helmdon, Sulgrave, Culworth, Hinton, Priors Marston – with a coffee stop at either the 20 (Sulgrave) or 30 (Harley Equestrian Centre) mile mark – depending on the state of riders’ legs!


We head back on the Charwelton Road via Preston Capes, Little Preston, Farthingstone, Litchborough, Bugbrooke, and Gayton. Ignore the reference to Whilton on the rides calendar as that was my error – as was citing the original distance as 75 miles: I put it down to failing eyesight…


The weather promises to be cool and dry, whilst the route itself is pleasantly undulating on quiet roads. All welcome.
