    Isle of Wight Plus weekend

    0 photos

    No punctures, no crashes, but lots of tired legs. Some more tired than others – 2 riders chose a shortcut saving a few kilometres at the end of the ride. Our Garmins showed 1388m of ascent, rather more than we are used to. A memorable day.

    Lymington-Linwood-Lymington

    2 photos

    11am start to give time to drive down and get settled. We will meet on Bridge Road. If you’re staying overnight, your B&B will probably let you park. We have avoided the off-road tracks, but we can’t avoid the odd sections of main road. For some of the way, we follow the famous Gridiron route. Lunch is at the popular Red Shoot Inn, so make sure you book early! Dinner is at The Crown Inn, Everton, a couple of miles from Lymington.…

    Sunday ride to Lower Heyford and Ludgershall

    3 photos

    Under an early summer sunshine, 18 of us filled the 3 tables in the riverside garden at Kizzies (see photo) while those planning to continue to lunch were hoping for the rain clouds to stay away – which they did 🙂  As the ride leader promised – a well chosen route long enough to get us ready for the Isle of Wight Plus weekend the following Sunday.

    Bike Week ride to Abingdon

    0 photos

    We have designed the ride for people who don’t ride regularly, for whatever reason, but who are considering “getting back on their bike”. Or maybe you just fancy a nice slow ride and don’t mind a few bumps as we follow Sustrans National Cycle Network route 5 to Abingdon. (Hybrid or mountain bikes more comfortable, but we have often used these tracks on standard road bikes).

    Sunday ride to Aston and Bibury

    4 photos

    To celebrate the coming of summer, there was a last minute (but unanimous) decision for the coffee ride to return via Duxford Ford (see photo).

    James’ ride report
    After coffee at Aston Pottery, the lunch group continued into the headwind, a 50+ shades of grey sky with a smattering of insignificant moisture. Awkward Hill (its real name) in Bibury was less awkward this year, as compared to last year Bibury was comparatively devoid of the usual hords of tourists impeeding our path. That said, it was no less step than last year!
    Lunch at the Catherine Wheel was good. A side of chips was shared round with usual generosity, I have to say the Catherine Wheel should go into the Good Chip Guide, as they were excellent.
    The threatened rain shower(s) arrived during lunch, and our pet shower followed us most of the way home, the wind not feeling quite as tail as one would have hoped from the head wind before lunch.

    Sunday ride to Abingdon and Cuxham

    3 photos

    The meandering wiggle into Abingdon centre from Sunningwell proves that we can avoid roads, but serves little other purpose. With 23 riders following the meanders, it was perhaps not surprising that a few got slightly lost en route.

    Sunday ride to Frilford and Shrivenham

    3 photos

    Some tired legs at the end of the day, ridden at a faster pace than usual (13.5mph) no doubt with an eye on getting us fit for the Isle of Wight Plus weekend in June.

    Sunday away-day ride to Wendover and Little Kingshill

    3 photos

    Into the heart of the Chilterns, this is a repeat of a ride we did 2 years ago. Plenty of hills and narrow country lanes.

    Sunday ride to Stratton Audley and North Marston

    Lessons from this ride: don’t forget to pack zip ties and a knife. Don’t ignore strange rattles – we had a mudguard and a crank about to fall off!

    Rides from Caen La Prairie on Sat 27 and Sun 28 April 2019

    2 photos

    Skilfully guided by Marion, 2 lovely rides to the seaside resorts on the north coast, followed by the picturesque valley of the Odon to the south. With winds gusting close to 50 mph on Saturday, we decided to return from Dauville by train – itself a memorable experience. The combination of rides, restaurants and company will remain long in our memories.
