Nice ride out on Saturday. Weather just turning so it was a bit chilly. Dry with the sun trying to break through.
Headed down the A419 to the Oxford road junction, taking the third exit towards Covingham and Wanborough. Used to come drinking here back in the 80’s and early 90’s, but stopped when we were charged entry at the Brewers Arms for New Year’s eve – it felt very insulting to be charged! Have been back a couple of times but that’s not a lot in the intervening 20years or so!
Leaving Wanborough, straight up the hill for Fox Hill. This is one of the UK’s best Motocross circuits is and international events were held here. Don’t know if they still are.
Straight across-ish at the zig-zag junction towards Hungerford. Roads were nice and clear this morning so a nice easy ride. Stopped in Hungerford to fill KES and then out to Marlborough, Calne and the Divine Café at Cherhill for a cuppa.
The Divine Café has a new painting, October 2015 – see if you can spot something in the picture that was not there 5 years ago! I spotted it!!
From here, we went further West towards Chippenham. Round this town towards the M4 and onto Malmesbury. Then home via our old favourite, the B4040.
Route can be found here, though the route round Chippenham was slightly different to the one shown!!
