Sun 18 February, 2018

The 1000 metres of descent were exhilarating and the 1000 metres of ascent were ok as long as you pedalled slowly. We were pleased to be able to offer lifts to 4 members who don’t have transport – and the parking in Burford is free. Full details »

Ride to coffee led by Isis Rides for Women. A flat ride though the Thames Valley to coffee, with the Col de Faringdon on the way into Faringdon providing the only notable hill of the day. A route parallel to the A 420 brings us back into the west end of 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.
