A flat ride out to Bampton for coffee, a hill in to Buckland before crossing south of A420 and back into Oxford down Cumnor Hill.
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. If you’d like to see the distances, go to the Ride with GPS website by clicking on “View Full Version” (top left of map).
After a damp early morning we met in sunshine at Broad St. A nice ride out even if on busy ish roads and blustery headwind. One rider stopped at coffee lured by plants and more coffee and chat with 2nd and 3rd groups. A great tail wind assisted return. One rider turned for Abingdon at Fyfield and then two more headed for ‘more hills’ at Cumnor leaving leader to complete ride alone (and drive back to pick up from Garden Centre!)
