Sunday ride to Bicester and Thame

Sunday, 3 September 2017 - 9:30am

Ride report

The forecast was mixed to say the least and still 17 joined us for coffee in Bicester – like the Pied Piper of Hamelin, we’d picked up a few along the way. Those heading back to Oxford after coffee shared the joys of roughly surfaced bridleways but not the hills to come for those heading for lunch in Thame via Brill. Pies at lunch were a warm welcome, as was the short ride back to Oxford and the relative lightness of the rain on the journey home.
