Sunday ride to Benson and Checkendon

Sunday, 15 March 2015 - 9:30am

Ride report

Shortcuts and extra loops are to be encouraged as we try to meet the needs of different riders, but if, in a rush of blood to the head, you decide to follow a faster rider make sure you know first where they are going (because you won’t be able to catch up to ask). A full English breakfast at the coffee stop is another need we can often accommodate, but be sure you can cruise at 35km+ to catch up with the main group. The well-chosen route from Goring to Checkendon is new for most of us and well worth further visits.
