A new ride for the new year, to start the season we’ll go out for a gentle ride around Berkshire. Our starting point will be the Blackbushe Café on the A30 leaving at 10:00AM, so for food/drink arrive earlier.

From there we will make our way north through Wokingham and up towards the Chiltern Hills. We will stop for a coffee and to pick up anyone who may wish to join later from the Oxford or North West London area at the Toad Hall Garden Center just north of Henley. (RG9 3AG)

Estimated Time of Arrival: 11:00AM

After lunch we pick up the A4009 again to enjoy it’s twists and turns all the way down through Streatley then Hampstead Norrey, depending on time and conditions we can cut south to the M4 or go north for a quick spin down the excellent B4494 into the top of Newbury. Eitherway we will complete the days ride just off the M4 Junction 12 at the McDonalds Restaurant.

Estimation completion time for the entire route would be around 4PM or the shortened route around 3:30PM.

Ride Leader will be Gemma on the CCM 450, back marker volunteers for the day are sought and appreciated.
