    Sunday ride to Aston and Faringdon

    0 photos

    Ride to coffee led by Isis Rides for Women. A flat ride though the Thames Valley to coffee, with the Col de Faringdon on the way into Faringdon providing the only notable hill of the day. A route parallel to the A 420 brings us back into the west end of Oxford.

    Sunday away-day ride Burford to Lower Swell

    2 photos

    The Cotswolds didn’t fail to impress, whether we were riding in the valleys or on the hill tops. The 1000 metres of descent were exhilarating and the 1000 metres of ascent were ok as long as you pedalled slowly. We were pleased to be able to offer lifts to 4 members who don’t have transport – and the parking in Burford is free.

    Sunday ride to Thame and Cuxham

    Did the coffee riders have the better of the day? We half-day riders were just 10 minutes from home, when the blue skies suddenly turned black and the heavens released hail stones horizontally into our faces, driven by a 16mph westerly. Which posed a dilemma: speed up for the final kilometres at the risk of even more painful needles to the face, or slow right down and spend more time under the hail storm? And a reminder that a cyclist’s sunglasses are not just protection against the sun…

    Sunday ride to Charlbury and Woodstock

    2 photos

    A pleasant flattish ride with just a few hills before coffee, and then a few more gentle climbs among scenic Cotswold villages on our way to lunch, followed by an easy ride home.

    Ride to coffee will be led by Isis Rides for Women. A fairly easy ride as we approach mid-winter. Lunch at a traditional pub and just the hill to Cuddesdon to tackle on the way home.

    Sunday ride to Nuneham Courtenay and Frilford Heath

    3 photos

    Notcutts Garden Centre is a welcoming venue for coffee, so welcoming that we had to beg to be allowed out via the automatic doors! As this was a short ride, 10 of the 14 decided to continue on to lunch. We were promised an easy ride, but it still hurts if you ride up Old Boar’s Hill as fast as you can – no one to blame but yourself!

    Sunday ride to Frilford and Aston

    2 photos

    Seeing the met office forecast for just one degree on Sunday morning at 9am might have discouraged a few riders. Yes it was cold, but no, we didn’t feel cold. Or perhaps the more daunting prospect was the 18 mph north easterly, gusting to 28 mph that would face us for the final 25k. The first threat can be reduced by having the right clothes and the second by riding in the wheels of the strongest rider. And if that rider happens to be the broadest, even better.

    Sunday ride to Aston

    2 photos

    As the week progressed, the weather grew milder and dryer. By Sunday, 15 riders had decided to join this New Year’s Eve special. The earlier torrential rain left the roads flooded but passable. As we headed north from Aston after lunch, mudguards were essential – what at first sight looked like mud turned out not to be just mud on closer inspection.

    Sunday ride to Frilford and Abingdon

    0 photos

    The short ride was well chosen to suit the cold and rainy weather, with most of the route completed by lunch. It only just qualified as an all-day ride since we were home by 2:30.

    Sunday ride to White Horse Hill and Faringdon

    0 photos

    Our annual ride to White Horse Hill for mince pies and mulled wine. Like us, many local clubs will join CTC Wantage’s annual festive ride in support of the Whiz-Kidz charity. This will be the fifth year we have attended and we hope to bring a large group of our riders to the car park at the top of White Horse Hill, where we will enjoy mince pies and mulled wine – and all in a good cause.

    Sunday ride to Wallingford and Checkendon

    1 photo

    Members weren’t deterred by the murky damp start, nor by the delay to fix an early puncture – the climb into Garsington soon had everyone warmed up again. The quiet road via Drayton St Leonard and the back way into Dorchester made a welcome change from our usual route. The cakes at The Bean and Brew in Wallingford never fail to disappoint. En route to lunch, we noted that the roads at the south end of the Chilterns seem to be getting a lot worse with numerous nasty pot holes. At the Black Horse at Checkendon, we shared the end room with a few mountain bikers and the pub cat. Sausage baguettes lived up to their reputation and as we reached home, the sun actually shone for a moment making the perfect end to this December ride.
