    Sunday ride to Witney and Leafield

    0 photos

    A fairly flat ride at the start and finish, but with a few lumpy bits in the middle – but this is the Cotswolds, after all šŸ™‚

    Sunday ride to Woodstock and Steeple Aston

    1 photo

    It was a wet and windy day and the four people who were foolhardy enough to continue on to lunch got drenched in icy rain on the way home (better on the way home than on the way to lunch!). It would have been 5 for lunch had not an urgent phone call alerted a rider that he was about to become a granddad and was needed elsewhere. We celebrated the event with coffee and cake.

    See plan B below

    Usually, when Isis Cyclists join us on the last Sunday of the month, it is to lead an easy ride to coffee, while Oxford City cyclists prefer the longer, all-day ride. All change this Sunday: it was Isis’ turn to be the “hard core” riders, ignoring the forecast of gusts up to 43mph and opting for a long coffee ride Thame. Meanwhile, Oxford City decided on a Plan B, with a short ride to coffee and then home before the worst of the gusts. In the end, 3 from Isis and 11 from City ventured out. We also learnt more about sealing tubeless tyres, but that’s a story for another day.

    Sunday ride to Bicester and Long Crendon

    Twenty one braved zero temperatures and potentially icy conditions (fortunately roads were all ok). We were rewarded with blue skies and stunning views on both sides of the road between Dorton and Chilton.

    Away-day ride to Middle Barton and Epwell

    2 photos

    There was a strong headwind in the morning and then the wind picked up even more in the afternoon making it quite challenging but the sun came out before the end which was lovely. A statement from Jon, uttered when the gradient was higher than 19%, Iā€™m in my lowest gear! Most of us had been there for a long timeā€¦..

    Sunday ride to Frilford and Eynsham

    1 photo

    The new year started with alas a driver on the wrong side of the road around a sharp corner, resulting in a nasty fall and skid for one of our riders. Fortunately after picking himself up and with help recovering from the shock was able to complete the whole ride. Certainly shaken but not stirred. On the bright side, we did enjoy the new tarmac surface through Yarnton.

    Thirteen of us were ready to ride on New Years Day at 10.30. After completing the Otmoor loop we came back to Chez Sue’s for plenty of lunch and chat. People donated generously and Ā£128 was raised for Alzheimers Research UK.

    Sunday ride to Woodstock and Finstock

    Glad to report no punctures and dry, mild-ish weather, enticing 19 out onto this winter ride. Twelve continued on to lunch where we enjoyed an excellent meal in The Plough at Finstock. Perfect timing for a winter ride – back home shortly after 3pm.

    Boxing Day Tweed Ride

    3 photos

    Weird cyclists on weird bikes are part of Oxford culture and no one batted an eye as these 12 made their way to the Broad Street meeting point. Once assembled, however, it was a different matter. Tourists queuing up to take pictures of what they imagined to be an ancient Oxford tradition.

    Not so! The tweed ride was the first of what may indeed one day become a tradition. Meanwhile, the sales assistant in the Fine Woollens & Tweeds shop was delighted to see this resurgence of the old fashioned look (see photo).

    Sunday ride to Bicester and Waterperry

    Muswell Hill!

    Cyclists have no need for managements consultants who like to teach us the price of over enthusiasm. For the cyclist making an all out assault on Muswell Hill, the price is intense discomfort – a memorable lesson, one would hope. Even so, many cyclists haveĀ muttered curses under their breath when they realise they have attacked the climb with enthusiastic naivety. Today, the discomfort could no longer be contained under the breath, but loud enough for all around to hear and accompanied by nods of agreement: “It’s a bit of a bugger!”

    Sunday ride to Waterperry and Oxford Welcome Break Services

    2 photos

    A ride perfectly sandwiched between between periods of heavy rain. Starting in a slight frost saw our sweeper avoid the first hill of the day by throwing his bike into a pothole causing a severe pinch puncture and a lift home from a local Good Samaritan.
