Ashridge - Starting in Studham and a loop to Ashridge and back with a cafe stop

Nath's off on a jolly so you all have to follow me on the one affraid

Just a few questions wheres the meeting point in Markyate, who's coming and wheres Ashridge? (only joking for the last one)

Bit of a mixture this one country lanes, bridlepaths/byeways and a few naughty bits if we get a bit lost.

Ok as Im leading Im changing the plan Razz

Meet at Studham outside the Red Lion pub (the one over looking the village green) 10am seems like a good time to start.

WEll done to to the hardy few!

It was a little wet and cold wasn't it

Ive just traced the route ( roughly) on to google maps and it came out about 18 miles (10 miles to the cafe) Plus 10 miles for me riding to studham from home


We lost 2 at the cafe feeling a little too cold and too wet so they called for a lift home Shocked I won't name names

It was a little slipperly in places and even a bit muddy at times. Rolling Eyes
Would of liked to take in a couple more of the descents to Aldbury but conditions said no.
The one that we did at full speed was just scary just so slippery once you were up to speed it was just no stopping.

I did get to wash my bike on the way home the roads were that flooded in was almost over the wheels at one point


Will have to put in down in the calender again when its drier

A big thank you to Darren for leading the ride!

I wasn't sure I'd make it to the start of the ride because the roads looked more like rivers...

A very entertaining ride, (slide?) and I hit the ground several times and had a puncture...

Enjoyed the cold soup at the cafe, I was past caring.

I'm glad to hear it was about 18 miles because I'm hurting in new places now.

Welcome to Dave and Rob on their first ride with the club...

The conditions were pretty crap on the roads let alone the muddy stuff. Glad you had fun, sorry I missed you at the cafe but had a puncture on my travels. Then found a watering hole (no pun intended) near Tring reservoirs and had HOT soup and a fab homemade cake!

Well done Guys! See you in Wales.
