To celebrate the coming of summer, there was a last minute (but unanimous) decision for the coffee ride to return via Duxford Ford (see photo).

Awkward Hill (its real name) in Bibury was less awkward this year, as compared to last year Bibury was comparatively devoid of the usual hords of tourists impeeding our path. That said, it was no less step than last year! Lunch at the Catherine Wheel was good. A side of chips was shared round with usual generosity, I have to say the Catherine Wheel should go into the Good Chip Guide, as they were excellent.

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.
