Sunday ride to Aston and Faringdon
Sunday, 25 February 2018 - 9:30am
Ride or Event Navigation
On this last Sunday of winter, the spring sunshine was no match for the bitterly cold wind, blowing from the north east. But we were riding west for the first half of the ride and were lulled into a false sense of security, barely having to pedal to maintain a good pace. Riding back from lunch, now into the face of the wind, was a different matter. Twenty one members defied the weather forecast, with its promise of 1 degree at the start, “feeling like” minus 6 and 14 completed the full day ride, beneath a cloudless blue cold sky.
