Sunday ride to Benson (group 1)

Sunday, 23 May 2021 - 9:30am

Starting from Broad Street, a ride to the south east of Oxford. We will head for the popular Waterfront Café at Benson where there is always good coffee and cakes or even something a bit more substantial.

Ride report

Only 7 of us in the end as 1 had cancelled through not owning waterproofs. A wise decision as we got caught in a couple of sharp cold showers. Lovely views of rolling Oxfordshire countryside to Benson Waterfront and back. We did stay dry at Benson.
