Mince Pie Ride to Uffington and Stanford

Sunday, 10 December 2023 - 9:00am

9am start from outside Go Outdoors on Old Abingdon Road

Lunch bookings

Please log in or register to book for lunch.

This is the annual Mince Pie ride to the top of White Horse/Dragon Hill to meet other cycling clubs and enjoy a mince pie and mulled wine (non-alcoholic is usually available too). As we are so far away and want to get there before they run out of mince pies we have to leave by 9am from outside Go Outdoors. The ride is more or less flat apart from the hill itself which could be walked/hiked. We will be stopping at the café in Stanford in the Vale on the way back for lunch.

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. If you'd like to see the distances, go to the Ride with GPS website by clicking on 'View Full Version' (top left of map).
