Away day ride to Preston Bissett and Bicester

Sunday, 29 January 2023 - 9:30am

Starting from rear of Bicester GC, a flat ride to try out a new venue The Garden Tipi Café at Preston Bissett for coffee and option to stay for lunch on return to Bicester. Train option to start (subject to strikes! and erratic Sunday timetable)

Ride report

We had a good ride – grey start and chilly but not as much as recent times. Nice round about route on quiet country lanes for lovely brunch at the Tipi cafe at Preston Bissett Nursery sausage rolls and carrot and cardamon cake were popular and generous mugs of coffee. The majority of riders who train-ed out to Bicester in the morning (always an adventure!) took advantage of the brightening skies to ride back to Oxford.

The map is an embedded link from Ride with GPS. You can zoom in to see the route in as much detail as you like. For example, you can zoom in (using the + sign) to see exactly where the start is.
