    Sunday ride to Stratton Audley and North Marston

    2 photos

    Big turnout for this, the first truly summer ride. White legs dazzled beneath a blue sky as we welcomed back some old friends – and remembered their names 🙂

    Sunday away-day ride to Wantage and Hungerford

    3 photos

    Garmin said 950m of ascent. That’s plenty over just 73k and the final descent was welcomed by well exercised legs. The persistent drizzle and light rain did little to spoil the pleasure of our visit to this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but we lost some of it in the mist. So perhaps another visit when the skies are bluer?

    Sunday ride to Waterperry and Long Crendon

    2 photos

    Not cold. Just a light breeze from the north. 80-90% chance of heavy rain. Well, 2 out of 3 was enough for 14 riders. In the end, the “heavy rain” turned out to be nothing more than Welsh drizzle. Actually quite refreshing.

    Sunday ride to Waterperry and Cherwell Valley Services

    3 photos

    A good attendance for Easter Sunday, with 11 continuing on to lunch (via the hole in the hedge). There has been idle speculation that the “hole in the hedge” was nothing more than cheap click bait. But the scandalmongers have at last been confounded – see photo of said hedge as Oxford City cyclists emerge from lunch at the Cherwell Valley motorway services.

    Sunday ride to Weston-on-the-Green and Lower Arncott

    2 photos

    This first ride of British Summer Time will be led as far as coffee by Isis (Rides for Women). We may go to the Flight House or carry on to Bicester Avenue GC for coffee depending on timing and numbers. Don’t forget to get up an hour early!

    Sunday ride to Witney and Burford

    0 photos

    A ride giving us a little taste of the glorious Cotswolds which we will venture deeper into later in the year. A flat ride to coffee, with some gentle hills leading to the drop down into Little Barrington and the lovely small road along the valley into Burford. The highly recommended pies in The Royal Oak will hopefully sustain us for the wind-assisted ride home.

    Sunday away-day ride Milton to Upper Boddington

    3 photos

    There are times when it’s useful to have leaders who know the roads like the back of their hands. This was one of those times. First, being Mothering Sunday, our lunch venue was packed with indulged mothers and we were asked to arrive later than planned. Second, the chef had left unexpectedly. Third, there were a lot of us. All of which contributed to a very late lunch with still 40k left to ride back to Milton, to be then followed by a 40 minute drive back to Oxford. We needed a short-cut to avoid the prospect of getting home after 6:30. Thanks to our knowledgeable leader and a borrowed map to replace the now redundant Garmin, we made it back to our cars in reasonable time.

    Sunday ride to Wallingford and Checkendon

    0 photos

    A direct route out of Oxford, to allow time to explore some of the pretty wooded lanes in the Chilterns. Lunch at the unique Black Horse in Checkendon – not gluten free though.

    Sunday ride to Aston and Faringdon

    3 photos

    On this last Sunday of winter, the spring sunshine was no match for the bitterly cold wind, blowing from the north east. But we were riding west for the first half of the ride and were lulled into a false sense of security, barely having to pedal to maintain a good pace. Riding back from lunch, now into the face of the wind, was a different matter. Twenty one members defied the weather forecast, with its promise of 1 degree at the start, “feeling like” minus 6 and 14 completed the full day ride, beneath a cloudless blue cold sky.

    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

    4 photos

    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.
