Sunday ride to Abingdon and Chalgrove

Sunday, 27 May 2018 - 9:30am

A wiggly route to Abingdon, followed by an easy ride to lunch and home.

Ride report

Despite Met office Yellow Warnings on Sunday, and promises of thunderstorms and torrential rain sweeping across our County, we encountered hardly a drop of rain. But there were no complaints as we emerged from lunch into blazing sunlight, apart from comments that it felt rather “muggy”. So much for the weather; now for the technical stuff. A recently attached pedal turned out to have been cross-threaded and worked loose after an hour or so. No one had a helicoil kit handy so a one-legged workout back home was the only option.
