Sunday ride to Aston and Burford

Sunday, 1 March 2020 - 9:30am

Please note that this pub requires us to choose food in advance. See below Lunch bookings and email your choice to the ride leader

Main details

Out via Cumnor Hill for a warm up, then downhill to coffee and cake at Aston Pottery. Gently rolling countryside takes us to lunch and home again.

Ride report

After fighting strong headwinds up Cumnor hill and on to Aston for coffee, we enjoyed almost spring-like, but windy conditions, marred only slightly by an attack of horizontal, face-stinging hailstones before lunch. Otherwise a perfect, sunny day out!
