A featured ride
Sun 19 November, 2023
We visited Long Crendon twice, both for coffee and lunch. Not too many hills before coffee at Base Coffee and then on for 12 hilly miles in a circuit to build up an appetite for lunch. We covered Ashendon, Dorton and Chilton. As John B said it was reminiscent of the Grand Old Dukeof York. The wind was gusting strongly, but just short of needing to cancel the ride. The rain surprisingly held off, though the last 5 miles or so before home we did have a light though persistent drizzle. Lunch was again very good at the Eight Bells. Full details »

This is the annual Mince Pie ride to the top of White Horse/Dragon Hill to meet other cycling clubs and enjoy a mince pie and mulled wine (non-alcoholic is usually available too). As we are so far away and want to get there before they run out of mince pies we have to leave by 9am from outside Go Outdoors. The ride is more or less flat apart from the hill itself which could be walked/hiked. We will be stopping at the café in Stanford in the Vale on the way back for lunch.

Lunch is at the Motorway services, which means it should be quick with plenty of choice even at this busy time of year – though the choice is often such that we get a picnic from Waitrose instead (eaten indoors)

A one stop pre-Xmas Ride. Out to Charlbury Garden Centre for the 3 Cs (coffee, cake and chat) and back in time for any final Christmas preparations.

Our cycling club is based in Oxford and we run regular Sunday rides, usually leaving at 9:30am from Broad Street. One of our experienced ride leaders takes us into the country at an average pace of around 20 kph – which means riding at 22-24 kph on the flat. We stop for coffee, when riders choose either to return to Oxford or to continue on to lunch. We welcome new riders to join our friendly group, lovers of the 3 Cs: coffee, cakes and chat.
