Definitely worth the effort, driving out to start in the heart of the Cotswolds. We were able to offer 4 lifts and 2 more came by train, conveniently arriving in Moreton-in-Marsh at 9:54.

Nice easy ride out to Bampton for coffee and on to Lechlade. Then a couple of hills around Coleshill (clue in name). A pause to admire the tithe barn at Coxswell and to Longcot for lunch before return from Uffington.

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.
