    Sunday ride to Uffington and Faringdon

    2 photos

    As reward for this annual fitness test, we were promised a wonderful view from the top of White Horse Hill, but  it turned out that most of the Vale was obscured by a large grey mass of cloud. Any disappointment was soon dispelled by the mince pies and mulled wine. It is always a pleasure to join dozens of other riders from so many local clubs in support of the Whiz-Kidz charity. Nicely rounded off by a helpful tailwind back to Oxford.

    Sunday ride to Ramsden and Combe

    4 photos

    “Not too challenging” the ride leader promised. Umm, not sure about that. Dividing the metres climbed by the distance in km gives 10.5. That’s actually quite hilly Mr Ride Leader! And Mr Website was remiss for not putting a gentle warning sign on the original map (see photo).

    Mr Ride Leader has also promised to remember his Garmin next time! Promises, promises…

    Several punctures today, including a tubeless tyre which wouldn’t inflate, apparently because the rider had forgotten to bring the required lighter fuel and lighter  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abH9__WKMhc.

    Disappointingly, a standard inner tube had to be fitted instead.

    Sunday ride to Waterperry and Long Crendon

    “Which foot do you unclip first? Is it a good idea to unclip left leg first so you can rest your foot on the kerb? When starting, which leg goes over first? What happens if you try the other leg? When your pedals are parallel (as descending on a mountain bike) which leg leads?”

    How long can such a conversation last? You’d be surprised!

    16 of the 18 continued on to lunch after coffee where we had filled the top room in Hunter’s Café (see photo). Perfect gender split today: 9 all 🙂

    Away-day ride Bourton-on-the-Water Burford

    5 photos

    Unusual to have a ride with 90% on country lanes, many of which have grass growing in the middle of the road and very few cars. Sunny autumnal weather too and we even managed to catch and join in an armistice ceremony (see photo). Not cold, no rain, note-perfect bugling of the last post.

    Eynsham Cricket Club Cassington Rd, Eynsham, Oxfordshire OX29 4LF We are once again combining the Annual General Meeting with our usual Sunday ride, though you are welcome to make your own way to the venue, where refreshments will be served from 10:30am and where there is ample parking space. For riders, we will leave from Broad Street at 9:30am. As usual, you can choose to ride home after the meeting, or join us for lunch at a local pub. If…

    Sunday ride to Aston and Faringdon

    2 photos

    The first cold ride of the year, but sunny for most of the time. The final 30 kilometres were into a 12-14mph north-easterly, with gusts into the mid 20s. The downpour as we approached home disappeared as suddenly as it had appeared. There was much discussion of an impending 200k audax ride…

    Sunday ride to Brightwell-cum-Sotwell and Checkendon

    4 photos

    Exactly as forecast, the wet morning mist cleared by coffee time. For the rest of the day, we rode beneath a cloudless blue sky as we ventured into the wooded lanes south of Checkendon. Nineteen riders today with an almost perfect gender balance.

    Away-day ride Milton to Ratley

    4 photos

    The worst Sunday weather forecast for some time, this away-day ride turned out to be an away-day drive for all but one (who needed to “get in the miles”). Yes, we did in fact drive to the coffee venue Chez Jon where we enjoyed our coffee, cakes and chat, leaving the bikes behind for once.

    If you like cycle-friendly country lanes, this is the ride for you – and no hills to speak of!

    Sunday ride to Stratton Audley and Quainton

    5 photos

    A good turnout of Isis (Rides for Women) and OxfordCycling.UK members at Broad Street meant there were three groups heading out on the beautiful autumnal ride to Stratton Audley Barn for coffee. Slow service at coffee together with an unexpected off-road section (the ride leader sends her apologies) resulted in a later than planned lunch stop. Leaving The George and Dragon, we set off for Brill Hill but the much-anticipated fast descent was spoilt by a large and slow-moving tractor 🙁

    SATURDAY coffee ride to Brightwell-cum-Sotwell

    2 photos

    Originally planned as a full-day Sunday ride, but changed to a half-day Saturday ride due to the bad weather. At least that meant we could spend more time chatting over coffee and cakes.
