    Sunday away-day ride to Faringdon and Lechlade

    2 photos

    We were warned – cold with clearing skies and feeling about 1 degree in the stiff north-easterly. Didn’t seem to bother us, as we all came suitably protected. One of our hardier riders declared he will probably wear longs once the temperature drops below zero (see photo). We stopped at 11am for 2 minutes silence and then got caught up in the crowded coffee venue half an hour later. By the time we were served, it was too late to continue on the planned route to lunch, so we found a shortcut to make up for lost time. One or 2 regretted missing the best hills, but it was only one or 2.

    AGM 5 November 2017 11am, ride from Broad Street 9:30am

    2 photos

    We once again (thanks to David Green’s cricketing contacts) enjoyed the hospitality of Eynsham Cricket Clubhouse, with real coffee by barista brother Richard Green, served with a variety of biscuits and homemade cakes. Attendance was up 40% from last year (21) with 3 apologies from regular members and we welcomed 2 new members to our Committee: Sue Altman as Secretary and Anthony Cohen member without portfolio to provide additional help planning and leading. We lose Stephen Lee who has served CTC and Cycling UK for many years in various roles, including club Chairman and Secretary. We wish him well and many more years of happy cycling and camping.

    Sunday ride to Witney and Faringdon

    2 photos

    Most noteworthy was the unusually large group assembled in Broad Street. There were 24 from Oxford Cycling plus another dozen or so from our sister club, Isis, who regularly join us on the last Sunday of the month. We are used to splitting into 2 groups to cope safely with the numbers, but this is the first time we have split into 3 groups.

    Sunday ride to Ramsden and Middle Barton

    With the lighter Sunday traffic, leaving Oxford in the morning isn’t so bad, and we’ll soon be enjoying some hilly Cotswold scenery to coffee, followed by undulating roads to lunch and back to Oxford.

    Sunday ride to Benson and Ardington

    4 photos

    Starting from Market Street to avoid the hardy souls running the Oxford half-marathon, 18 of us (which included a few picked up along the way) climbed out of Oxford towards Benson. We zig-zagged our way along autumnal country lanes with one rider commenting that she never knew there were so many back roads between Oxford and Chalgrove! After coffee at the welcoming and busy Waterfront Café , 5 of us departed for lunch at the Boar’s Head in Ardington, whence back to Oxford at a good pace and home for 4pm.

    Sunday ride to Witney and Enstone

    3 photos

    This ride will be best remembered for the fast pace set by 2 young ladies that the rest of us unwisely felt obliged to follow – if only to shout from behind “left turn coming up”. It will also be remembered for the excellent choice of route – making good use of the traffic-free lanes in the north of our County. There was a moment of navigational confusion explained by the fact that Cogges Lane and Tar Road are in fact one and the same.

    Sunday ride to Thame and Long Crendon

    3 photos

    The full-day ride turned out to be 3 times as popular as the half-day coffee ride – and this despite 5 of our regular full-day riders being otherwise occupied. As we enjoyed the sunshine in the garden at the Eight Bells, the cool breeze had us wondering whether this might be one of the last truly summer rides.

    Sunday away-day ride to Lambourn and Chieveley

    1 photo

    With only 2 booked for lunch, it looked like it was going to be a small ride. The day started with a lesson in updating your car satnav. The car park post code directed the satnav to what we thought was going to be the wrong car park in Wantage, but our fears were allayed when it guided us just outside Wantage to a road junction, where we were told we had arrived at our destination. With some human intervention we arrived at what must have been the correct car park as the other 3 riders were there.
    It was quite chilly, OK for shorts but jackets were on. A pretty route via Letcombe Regis and Blowingstone Hill gave us a good run down to Lambourn for coffee. A few cakes were available (the delivery was late), but pancakes being on the menu remedied the situation.
    A pleasant run down the Lambourn valley (though the river was dry for most of it) saw the start of light rain, so waterproofs were on. A climb got us to Chievely for a good lunch. The view in the pub gents toilets was of a few of the pub’s poor online reviews, framed and mounted on the wall (one was a moan about the small print on the pub’s “Dogs Welcome” sign – on lead, no barking – which the owners of the unleashed barking dog had not spotted on the way in).
    After lunch, we meandered our way on quiet almost traffic free lanes in light rain before joining the B 4494 back to Wantage.
