    Sunday ride to Aston

    1 photo

    The weather was forecast to be windy and showery. That, along with some members now being under tier 2 restrictions, combined to reduce the numbers from 6 to 4. We rode to Aston via Eynsham and Sutton. Though windy, it wasn’t too gusty. The threatened showers held off all day, leaving a grey day with some autumnal colour surviving the recent winds.

    We took coffee at Aston Pottery, where they managed efficiently despite Covid restrictions.

    The ride back was a bit swifter, having a tail wind. We included the bridleway from Hinton Waldrist to Longworth (quite a good surface) which made a nice change from our normal route in from Pusey.

    In all probability, this was the last ride for at least a month, as next weekend will have new national lockdown restrictions in place.

    Sunday ride to Frilford

    1 photo

    Five of us set off to explore the byways, bridleways and back roads of Oxfordshire, starting with the Sustrans National Cycle Network route 5 along the river where we carefully made our way around walkers and other cyclists. We had a brief stop in Abingdon to fix a puncture where we bumped into Ellen and Steve.

    With blue skies ahead, we rode through the mud, grass, and puddles on the bridleway from Drayton to Venn Mills. No swimming occurred thankfully and Barbara’s off-road bike was nominated as the most well-equipped bike for the route! An unusually warm and sunny late October Sunday meant Millet’s Farm was quite busy but an outdoors lunch was enjoyed. With a few showers along the way and a shortcut through Cumnor, we made it back to Oxford for 2.30pm.

    Sunday ride to Haddenham (1)

    0 photos

    A practically windless day which meant it was a bit misty and atmospheric, but perfect for cycling if you had enough layers on. A really lovely route which was quite hilly and included half of Brill Hill then Ashendon Hill which was swiftly followed by Winchendon Hill. Coffee was meant to be at Haddenham Garden Centre but riding along the road that I thought it was on, we came across a farm shop and cafe and so we called in and had a nice break there. While we were there, the second group were spotted pulling in to the same place but then going on as they must have realised it wasn’t the right place. So we didn’t overlap at all and were very socially distanced!

    Sunday ride to Bletchingdon

    1 photo

    There was a chilly wind but lots of sunshine to highlight the views. The cafe at the Greenhill Farm Campsite in Bletchingdon was open and served a decent cup of coffee. Today’s ride is an example of why it is worth booking on a ride even though there is a waiting list. Helen was second on the waiting list right up to Saturday evening and then a couple of cancellations meant she was able to come with us.

    Wednesday Ride to Stadhampton

    The ride did go ahead with just two of us, after three cancellations. It was a delightful morning, made memorable at Cuddesdon Mill where the valley bottom was extensively flooded, but thankfully just passable.

    Wednesday Ride to Farmoor

    Three riders risked a rather poor weather forecast to attend this very short, Wednesday morning ride to Farmoor Reservoir, via Bayworth hill, Old Boars Hill, Besselsleigh and Tumbledown, but in the event experienced only light rain, on the final leg, following coffee taken at the Waterside Café.

    Sunday ride to Charlbury (second group)

    Five riders met in Summertown to enjoy a sunny ride to The Old Shed. Despite a few serving issues, we enjoyed our usual Coffee, Cakes and Chat, while one of our members bravely sported his new status on his jersey as a member of the 60+ group (that’s years old, not distance ridden).
