Sunday ride to Bletchingdon
Sunday, 11 October 2020 - 9:30am
Until further notice, all our rides must be pre-booked to ensure a maximum group size of 6. Remember that you need to be logged in to see the booking form (below the map).
The map is an embedded link from Ride with GPS. You can zoom in to see the route in as much detail as you like. For example, you can zoom in (using the + sign) to see exactly where the start is. If you’d like to see the distances, go to the Ride with GPS website by clicking on “View Full Version” (top left of map).
Meeting and starting from the Elsfield turn just off the By-pass near Marston, we then head north up as far as Somerton on a scenic ride with just a few lumps, nothing too onerous. Stopping on the way back at the café at the Greenhill farm campsite just outside Bletchington.
There was a chilly wind but lots of sunshine to highlight the views. The cafe at the Greenhill Farm Campsite in Bletchingdon was open and served a decent cup of coffee. Today’s ride is an example of why it is worth booking on a ride even though there is a waiting list. Helen was second on the waiting list right up to Saturday evening and then a couple of cancellations meant she was able to come with us.
