A featured ride
Sun 24 October, 2021
This was our last British Summer Time ride this year. The weather was mild, but the summer meadow in Broad St had been cleared away, leaving a few small planters by the café seating, and lots of curvy flowers painted on the road. We made it to coffee at Waterperry via the usual Horspath route where the weather was warm enough to sit outside. After coffee we made our way around the northeast edge of Otmoor with a helpful tail wind to lunch at Bicester Avenue, our fist visit here as a lunch venue. Food was good and it is a busy enough place you don’t need to prebook. We then had to negotiate our way through the south side of Bicester with its numerous long winded cycle crossings and undersized traffic islands (unnavigable on a tandem, and only just on a solo bike) before escaping Bicester towards Bucknell. After that is was a run down to Kidlington and back into Oxford. Full details »

Off to Charlbury for coffee, either at the Deli there or the Sports Hall, whichever people fancy. Or even sitting out on the Playing Close if the weather is nice. Then out round Chadlington and Milton u Wychwood and to Witney for lunch where, again, we can choose from many places to stop on the day, but will probably try Delice after a good experience recently.

A gentle, predominantly flat, ride as an alternative morning ride for the away-day. Going out via Woodstock, we’ll benefit from Annies outdoor seating for our coffee stop.

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.
