    Away-day ride to Brightwalton and Wickham

    2 photos

    The rider who caught us up as we were leaving coffee had driven to the wrong car park. His penance was to miss out somewhat on the coffee, cakes and chat.  Despite the cold east wind, it was a lovely ride with very little traffic and some great roads.

    Sunday ride to Wallingford and Checkendon

    4 photos

    The lanes around Checkendon, it seems, were made for cyclists. Certainly not wide enough for 2 cars to pass. Just warm enough to sit outside for lunch. Just.

    Sunday ride to Ramsden and Duns Tew

    1 photo

    Apart from that fluke weather in February, this was the first truly spring Sunday. Perfect for a day out on the bike. The lunch group practised a bit of good Samaritan to a stranded couple (they forgot to bring a pump! Really!) We welcomed 5 new riders and hope to see them again on one of our Sunday rides.

    Sunday ride to Benson and Milton Hill

    3 photos

    Fortunately the dangerous gusting wind had abated in the early hours of Sunday morning, though we caught some of the hail on the way home. We welcomed a new rider (and his dog!)

    Away day ride Chez Jon and Ratley

    2 photos

    Away day ride in North Oxfordshire/South Warwickshire partly inspired by visit to the area during the September Tour of Britain cycle race. There are some hills…837m of ascent over 72k is hilly. Divide metres climbed by distance. If >10, we say it’s hilly

    Sunday ride to coffee only

    1 photo

    We had a bit of a head wind riding to coffee, but minimal rain. After the usual main road dash from Marcham, we arrived at coffee where we planned to linger awhile before heading back home in order to avoid the worst of the forecast 40+mph gusts. This time, the wind being in our favour, we had no trouble keeping up with the electric bike 🙂
    As it happened, our lunch venue turned out to be closed (as we discovered later). So on this occasion, the poor weather saved the rider leader from some embarrassment!

    Sunday ride to Waterperry and Chalgrove

    2 photos

    How unpredictable is our weather! A year ago, on this last Sunday of winter, we had to contend with the threat of snow and with a “feels like” temperature of minus 6 degrees. This year, we could sit outside and enjoy the sunshine at Waterperry Gardens. We were also fortunate to arrive before a motorcyclist group and 3 other cycling groups, all of whom joined the back of the queue. Nineteen of us (16 + 3 from Isis) set off from Broad Street following an interesting and typically meandering route out of the City. It wasn’t long before we stopped to stow away the winter jackets – but no one thought to bring sun cream 🙂

    Sunday ride to Witney and Leafield

    2 photos

    At last, a fresh and breezy sunny morning. Only 1 puncture and a few bits falling off bikes – so a fairly uneventful day. For lunch, the “child size” roast was popular, especially when it turned out that this “child” could have been a giant’s offspring.

    Sunday ride to Woodstock and Steeple Aston

    1 photo

    It was a wet and windy day and the four people who were foolhardy enough to continue on to lunch got drenched in icy rain on the way home (better on the way home than on the way to lunch!). It would have been 5 for lunch had not an urgent phone call alerted a rider that he was about to become a granddad and was needed elsewhere. We celebrated the event with coffee and cake.

    See plan B below

    1 photo

    Usually, when Isis Cyclists join us on the last Sunday of the month, it is to lead an easy ride to coffee, while Oxford City cyclists prefer the longer, all-day ride. All change this Sunday: it was Isis’ turn to be the “hard core” riders, ignoring the forecast of gusts up to 43mph and opting for a long coffee ride Thame. Meanwhile, Oxford City decided on a Plan B, with a short ride to coffee and then home before the worst of the gusts. In the end, 3 from Isis and 11 from City ventured out. We also learnt more about sealing tubeless tyres, but that’s a story for another day.
