Road Ride Preperations

We've been out riding the road route today getting it ready for Sunday.

If you know the area the route heads through Berrick Salome, Britwell Salome, Nettlebed and Northend for the short route riders. The Medium route covers the same plus a visit to Hambleden, West Wycombe and Stokenchurch.

There's a few descents with gravel on the road, it's fine if you're riding single file in the car tracks but you'll want to avoid the middle of the lane.

The final descent back to Watlington doesn't have any gravel and is pretty much straight to the finish, it's easy to top 60kph without trying too hard.
