Sunday ride to Benson and Milton Hill

Sunday, 17 March 2019 - 9:30am

Please book lunch before 6pm Friday

Main details

Of the many directions we have available from Oxford, south is the least visited, possibly for good reason. Part of this ride will allow us to view “The Beautiful South”.

Ride report

Fortunately the dangerous gusting wind had abated in the early hours of Sunday morning, though we caught some of the hail on the way home. We welcomed a new rider (and his dog!)
