Away-day ride to Whichford and Blockley

Sunday, 9 July 2017 - 10:00am

New lunch booking arrangements: see below the map

Our away-day ride starts at 10am from New Street Car Park, Chipping Norton OX7 5LJ

Ride report

One would have to go a long way to find better riding terrain than the Cotswolds, enhanced on Sunday by perfect weather and great riding companions. Each hill was complemented by a fast and safe descent: 67kph seemed fast until we remembered that yesterday’s Tour de France sprint finish on the flat was faster .
