Ride report

Fantastic weather and great company made this ride, and of course the amazing woodland tracks and scenery as the leaves start to turn. Having to walk up a couple of the steepest and roughest parts and a couple of punctures couldn’t detract. It was felt that this should become a fixture in the ride calendar – perhaps twice – in Spring AND Autumn. Nice pizzas at a new pub in Piddington (Bucks!) and a cuppa back at the Spire & Spoke just added to the overall experience.
