Sunday ride to Abingdon and Abingdon

Sunday, 7 February 2016 - 9:30am

Ride report

This ride broke all records by having the lunch stop just 50 metres from coffee. For future reference (according to their website) Throwing Buns in Abingdon is no longer open on Sundays. We had to make do with Costa, which (perhaps as a result) appears to be doing excellent business. Those who looked out onto a very rainy 8am Sunday morning and decided to go back to bed missed a very pleasant rest of the day.
