Sunday ride to Bampton and Aston

Sunday, 17 October 2021 - 9:30am

Note changed start venue - Cornmarker, outside Waterstones

A ride out to a couple of favourites with a little loop on some quiet lanes in between.

Ride report

Starting point confusion, grey skies with spots of rain and a pre-coffee puncture on a new tyre! did nothing to dampen the spirits. It felt quite warm and the sun shone later. Coffee and cake at the increasingly upmarket Bampton GC was very welcome and a nice lunch at Aston.

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.
