Sunday ride to Benson and Watlington

Sunday, 11 January 2015 - 9:30am

Ride report

As much as it was cold and misty last Sunday, this Sunday brought weather which was pleasantly bright and sunny. This was winter weather at its best, apart from a brisk north-westerly which held up progress on the way home. The lanes from Ewelme to Christmas Common seem made for cyclists – they are certainly too narrow for cars…
