Sunday ride to Bampton and Aston

Sunday, 26 January 2020 - 9:30am

Please book lunch before 6pm Friday

Cumnor Hill to warm us up on a winter day, then pretty flat all the way. Lunch at Aston Pottery just for a change….. I recommend the quiche.

Ride report

Poor weather forecast and longer run to coffee may have deterred some…. in the end the rain wasn’t as heavy and came a little later so apart from the unfortunate rider who suffered a late puncture and a ride leader wehjo offered mo more than moral support. Warning about using gas cylinder inflation – possible first case of frost bite from an unsleeved canister!
