    Sunday ride to Witney and Lower Heyford

    0 photos

    More or less a re-run of the ride that was cancelled on both 19 January and 23 February. There are some hills and the route has been extended a little to take advantage of the first day after clocks go forward.

    Sunday ride to Wallingford and Checkendon

    0 photos

    Lunch at the basic Black Horse pub (no gluten free and cash only) to avoid Mother’s Day (aka Mothering Sunday) and the difficulty of finding places that aren’t full of mothers and their dutiful offspring.

    Sunday ride to Twyford and Launton

    1 photo

    A wet ride in parts, a VERY wet ride in other parts! A friendly reception at the volunteer run Twyford Community shop for much needed refreshment. Nine of us made a brave loop to the welcome and welcoming Bull Inn. The run home was drier and we were accompanied through Otmoor by a time-confused barn owl – it wasn’t that dark.

    Half-day ride to Waterperry

    1 photo

    Despite a not altogether favourable weather forecast, including blustery showers and a steady south-west breeze, eleven cyclists attended Sunday’s half-day ride, a circuit of Otmoor. In the event, the rain held off until after mid-day and amounted to no more than a single light shower at Horspath as we neared home, while for much of the outward journey beyond Islip the wind had settled in pleasantly behind, bringing ease and quiet, some of it in sunshine. We made the approach to Worminghall through Horton cum Studley, rather than by the published route via Oakley which is more exposed, but as things turned out the wind never really threatened to be a problem. Refreshment was taken at Waterperry Gardens.

    Away-day ride to Brightwalton and Chilton Foliat

    2 photos

    Although gusty, the winds were not nearly as fierce as several previous weekends. Twelve of us set off from Wantage and cycled to the farm shop at Saddleworth for coffee and cake. It was only 6 miles but almost all steeply upwards, starting with Chain Hill. Refreshed by coffee and delicious home made cakes, we cycled south along narrow country lanes which were flooded much like the last time we took a similar route. Several cars appeared to take pleasure in splashing us and while it did rain, it was not as much as forecast and the ride after lunch was dry. The sun shone on the Downs all the way back to Wantage.

    Sunday ride to Aston and Burford

    3 photos

    After fighting strong headwinds up Cumnor hill and on to Aston for coffee, we enjoyed almost spring-like, but windy conditions, marred only slightly by an attack of horizontal, face-stinging hailstones before lunch. Otherwise a perfect, sunny day out!

    Sunday afternoon ride to Waterperry

    2 photos

    Well 6 of us managed to get out eventually today. The ride left from the Elsfield turn at 1pm and there were 4 of us who met up with Clare and Jon at Piddington Hill. The gusty winds dropped although it was still tough when we were riding into it. It was a 50k ride with a well deserved stop at Waterperry after 35k.

    0 photos

    A gentle wander around the Vale of the White Horse to the south of Abingdon, taking in a selection of sustrans routes and the newly enhanced Kennington bypass.

    Sunday ride to Woodstock and Finstock

    2 photos

    After a possible cancellation due to high winds, we had a dry and sunny ride out to Woodstock where 19 of us had coffee, cakes and lots of chat in Hampers. Thirteen of us continued on to Finstock for lunch. No mechanical problems and only a bit of headwind – a good ride.
