Ride to Woodford Halse – Saturday 25th January

Peter Bayles is leading this ride to Woodford Halse:

Start time:  9.30 a.m.
Meeting point:  Hunsbury Hill library, Overslade Close, East Hunsbury NN4 0RZ
Distance:  40 mls (Brisk) or 35 mls (Moderate)
Refreshment stop:  Harley Equestrian Centre
Pace:  Brisk or Moderate
Time Expected Back:  Around 1.30pm

We have two rides on Saturday, depending on the cyclists joining on the day, starting at 9.30am from East Hunsbury Library.

The weather on Saturday looks to be reasonable for a January –  overcast and cold, but not icy.

The Brisk Ride is 40 miles, probably at a pace of around 15 mph. The Moderate Ride is 35 miles, and will be around 12 mph. The cake stop is at Harley Equestrian Centre, at around 23 (or 17) miles which, as we all know, offers a great selection of food to tempt hungry cyclists.

Both routes essentially follow a similar route to the West of Northampton, taking in Tiffield, Greens Norton, and Culworth before the coffee stop near Woodford Halse.  The Moderates can take a more direct route from Greens Norton via Caswell and Canon’s Ashby to the coffee stop.

The return leg is 17 miles, via Preston Capes and Pattishall, with both groups following the same route.

We look forward to welcoming all riders, as always, and especially any new riders who may wish to join the ride.  For any further questions, please feel free to contact Peter on 07979850096
