Sunday ride to Bicester and North Marston

Sunday, 16 July 2017 - 9:30am

New lunch booking arrangements: see below the map

Looking forward to lovely summer weather, our ride to Bicester Avenue for coffee is followed by a more challenging longer ride to lunch in North Marston – with a couple of hills on the way home to use up any surplus energy.

Ride report

Most of us were happy with 100km, but our leader added 30k more to the start and another 30k to get back home, in order to make up for having missed the Wantage 100 miles in June.
