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 »

Out to Middle Aston to try out the Grain Store for coffee; a fairly new place that welcomes cyclists. Then heading south west through country lanes to Witney for lunch before cycling home. Ride is fairly hilly.

It’s Mothers’ Day so we will take the opportunity to have lunch at the Black Horse in Checkendon. A place that no self-respecting child would take their mother to on this day. Basic baguettes and chips. No Gluten free food. BYO if necessary. There might be a time off road alternative between Crowmarsh and South Stoke. The gpx route follows the road.

A fairly flat ride to the community run Twyford Village Stores. A short loop north before a pub lunch at Black Bull, Launton and a ride over Otmoor back to Oxford.

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.
