Sunday ride to Benson and Cuxham

Sunday, 2 July 2017 - 9:30am

We will be travelling southeast, dipping into the Chilterns with a couple of decent hills between coffee and lunch.

Ride report

Having volunteered to lead a second group because “I’ve got it on my Garmin”, the volunteer soon discovered his route wasn’t the same as the ride leader’s. The map brigade were quick to attribute this failure to technology, rather than to the real culprit: human error. After all, one could bring the wrong map. A great ride, supported by 21 members, 14 of whom were women (see photos).
