Sunday ride to Aston

Sunday, 13 March 2022 - 9:30am

A one stop ride to Aston for brunch, in a clockwise direction, mostly on familiar roads with a tiny bit of exploration for some perhaps.

Ride report

A windy ride but not so cold, with the beginnings of spring showing though and a slightly warming sun putting in a few guest appearances. The route included some sections previously un-pedalled by many, including about a mile of the old A420 between Fyfield and Kingston Bagpuize. Hoisted by his own petard, the rider leader’s plan to get to the pottery cafe before the 12:00 lunch rush failed with a spectacular tyre blow-out a couple of miles before Aston. The puncture was fixed with a helpful boot from Sue.
