Rider Times: Southern Trail Ride - Duncton, November 2010
Ride Times (Click your route below)
The seasons are changing, the dusty summer trails are gone for another year, but this was a perfect day for an autumn - winter transition ride!
Low golden sun patched the downs through towering shower clouds that never delivered what they threatened. The South Downs trails generally held firm, though the first slippery surfaces of the season combined with the fallen leaves to introduce a technical edge to even seemingly modest trails. And above all, the hills just kept coming! Underestimate the South Downs at your peril. Rider consensus at the finish was clear; a great ride and a tough route, across all distances. Even the Short ride at a modest 12 miles, was in no way an easy 12 miles!
Next up for the Trail Rides & Whyte Winter 50s is our last event of the year; pre Xmas treat in the Chilterns from Princes Risborough. See you there!
