Ride report

Chipping Norton away day always means a number of big hills so we hope the riders were not too disappointed with only 5 major climbs. Beautiful weather as with most of the summer greeted people at Chippy. Wyatt’s garden centre for coffee saw us all sitting outside and enjoying the view with the exception of Jackie who was stung by one of the many local wasps. Onwards to our house in Todenham for a picnic lunch, teas, coffees and ice creams before departing on a somewhat easier route back to Chippy. Our thanks go to all who came; we hope they enjoyed the day as much as we did. Special thanks to Clare Greenhill who provided some lovely food and had the kettles hot on our arrival. Also spending time playing with the dog.
