Sunday ride to Abingdon and South Moreton

Sunday, 26 February 2023 - 9:30am

Please book lunch by Friday 6pm. Thank you.

A short route to a choice of coffee venues in Abingdon market place. A ride on to the community run The Crown at South Moreton, going up through Garsington on the way home.

Ride report

We had a great turn out (15 for lunch) on a sunny day with a bit of a chilly north-east wind. An unusual route out through Sandford – walking across the lock of course. Coffee inside and out in the market place with a bonus Gruffalo post box topper. A nice lunch at a ‘new’ (to most of us) venue. It was a bit harder work on the way back into the wind.

The map is an embedded link from Ride with GPS. You can zoom in to see the route in as much detail as you like. For example, you can zoom in (using the + sign) to see exactly where the start is.
