Sunday ride to Abingdon and Wallingford

Please logon to see the ride booking form (below the map)

To Abingdon via Cumnor then on to Wallingford. A chance to find somewhere to park if you are doing our sister club’s Century Ride on July 4th. Then back home via Ewelme, Cuxham and Great Milton.

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.

Ride report

A lovely warm and sunny day as we left Oxford via Cumnor Hill picking up Carmel near the Volvo garage and downhill all the way to Abingdon Market Square for coffee at our own choice of venue where we were joined by Phil, fresh from his lie-in. A relatively short journey to lunch, then via National Cycle Route 5 to Didcot and on though half a dozen South Oxfordshire villages to Wallingford for a picnic in the Kinecroft under the shade of a very big tree. Onward via Ewelme, Cuxham and under the M40 for a few miles on the almost deserted old A40, stopping to take on water in Tetsworth – a reminder that we need to drink more and take plenty of water with us on hot and sunny days! Finally home though the continuingly spectacular countryside around Great Milton and Cuddesdon before “flying” down the big hill into Horspath. A lovely day out enjoyed by all!
