Sunday ride to Benson (group 2)

Sunday, 23 May 2021 - 10:00am

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

Despite the ride leader’s temporary mislaying of two riders at Cuddesdon on the way out, resulting in a twenty-minute delay, Sunday’s route to Benson and back was much enjoyed by Group 2, who suffered just one heavy rain-shower, approaching the roundabout at Crowmarsh. At the Waterfront Café, hot food rather than cake was preferred. Much of the time we benefited from a following wind on the (largely warm and dry) return leg.
