I think Schmunk's keyboard has hiccups.

Evan's Cycle chart suggests either  19-20" or L.

Lil Sis, you would be more than welcome


Fefe .. I would think a hybrid would be ok, I dont <<cough>> know that stretch of the Ridgeway that well but it is a bridle path and good for walkers et,c so I expect the answer to be yes dependant on the robustness of the hybrid?

Ta, Melds- it would be the same one I did the Downs Link on (I think you brought your CX out to play that day).

I would say it would be ok .... at best the ground is still dry so that should help

I cant imagine it being too bad for a hybrid but if it is you can zip up the road and save a place in the pub garden!!!

A look at the Ridgeway website may give a clue as to bike suitability?

Oh me oh my.  How the heck did I do that?  5x posts one after the other

FeFe - The MTB I can borrow is a 19".  No hassle shoving it on the top of the car roof with mine

OK .. plan so far


Meet at Cowleaze Woods car park which is just off Junc 6 of the M40

We can then cycle along The Ridgeway or The Icknield Way (whichever favours cyclists) and go to Wallingford or Goring as time allows for a spot of lunch by the river and come back up to the car park

Cowleaze Carpark directions

alternative directions!


Looks a bit tricky to find by all accounts but if you look south of Junc 6 on a map there is also a car park at Aston Rowant nature reserve so as long as we are all there or thereabouts it should work !


Not sure how far it is, but we can cycle out for an agreed time to a pub and then come back again!

Wellies might be an idea

Hoping to meet at the Cowleaze car park and source the Ridgeway from there

Holly reliably informs me that it is trails rather than hardcore mtb territory

Time?

I've got a good MTB guide book which is showing a reasonable number of pubs close to the Ridgeway in that area! I'll try to remember to pack it!
