    Sunday ride to Charlbury (second group)

    0 photos

    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).

    Sunday ride to Charlbury (first group)

    0 photos

    This was the first of two rides to the Old Shed at Charlbury. The group of 5 (1 rider who had booked failed to turn up) met outside M&S in Summertown where we chatted to Iraj before setting off. It was a lovely sunny day and we did our 3 usuals of coffee, cake and chat before returning home.

    Sunday ride to Aston

    0 photos

    A sunny but chilly start into the unexpected headwind out to the Pottery, I don’t think we’ve ever seen so many other cyclists on the road. Lovely!
    Social distancing in the café was slightly strange – most of us having a table to ourselves and only a few other customers in there having to put us with our slightly raised voices (definitely not shouting!).
    Following several repeated missed turns, I finally tamed Gary Garmin who was then happy to guide us home though the beautiful west Oxfordshire countryside. So enjoyable was the ride that most were surprised to be “there already” when rode into Cumnor ready for the revenge trip down the hill.

    Sunday coffee ride to Benson 2

    0 photos

    Two groups of 6 rode to the Benson Waterfront Cafe with a half hour gap between the groups on a chilly morning. Benson is large and very well organised which meant the groups managed to overlap and meet up safely. The sun came out for coffee and it was lovely to see some faces for the first time since before lockdown.

    Sunday ride to Witney and Lower Heyford

    0 photos

    More or less a re-run of the ride that was cancelled on both 19 January and 23 February. There are some hills and the route has been extended a little to take advantage of the first day after clocks go forward.

    Sunday ride to Wallingford and Checkendon

    0 photos

    Lunch at the basic Black Horse pub (no gluten free and cash only) to avoid Mother’s Day (aka Mothering Sunday) and the difficulty of finding places that aren’t full of mothers and their dutiful offspring.

    Sunday ride to Twyford and Launton

    1 photo

    A wet ride in parts, a VERY wet ride in other parts! A friendly reception at the volunteer run Twyford Community shop for much needed refreshment. Nine of us made a brave loop to the welcome and welcoming Bull Inn. The run home was drier and we were accompanied through Otmoor by a time-confused barn owl – it wasn’t that dark.

    Half-day ride to Waterperry

    1 photo

    Despite a not altogether favourable weather forecast, including blustery showers and a steady south-west breeze, eleven cyclists attended Sunday’s half-day ride, a circuit of Otmoor. In the event, the rain held off until after mid-day and amounted to no more than a single light shower at Horspath as we neared home, while for much of the outward journey beyond Islip the wind had settled in pleasantly behind, bringing ease and quiet, some of it in sunshine. We made the approach to Worminghall through Horton cum Studley, rather than by the published route via Oakley which is more exposed, but as things turned out the wind never really threatened to be a problem. Refreshment was taken at Waterperry Gardens.

    Away-day ride to Brightwalton and Chilton Foliat

    2 photos

    Although gusty, the winds were not nearly as fierce as several previous weekends. Twelve of us set off from Wantage and cycled to the farm shop at Saddleworth for coffee and cake. It was only 6 miles but almost all steeply upwards, starting with Chain Hill. Refreshed by coffee and delicious home made cakes, we cycled south along narrow country lanes which were flooded much like the last time we took a similar route. Several cars appeared to take pleasure in splashing us and while it did rain, it was not as much as forecast and the ride after lunch was dry. The sun shone on the Downs all the way back to Wantage.
