Saturday half-day ride to Charlbury
Saturday, 23 December 2023 - 9:30am
Ride or Event Navigation
A one stop pre-Xmas Ride. Out to Charlbury Garden Centre for the 3 Cs (coffee, cake and chat) and back in time for any final Christmas preparations.
We cycled on Saturday as I thought Xmas Eve would just be too close to Xmas for our club members to be free to ride. Ten of us met in Broad Street for a 32 miles coffee ride to Charlbury Garden centre and back. The Garden Centre, previously Hilltop more accurately described its location so we had a relatively hilly ride out and back. The weather was warm for December, though windy on the way out; a nice tailwind for our return. On our way back through Combe I spotted a good friend walking past an angel (see photo). My friend kindly offered me coffee which I declined as I thought coffee for 10 would be a bit of an imposition.
