Sunday ride to Brightwell-cum-Sotwell and Checkendon

Sunday, 26 March 2017 - 9:30am

Summer time starts

This ride is led by Isis Cyclists (rides for women) as far as coffee, followed by a longer full-day ride to welcome the start of British summer time.

Ride report

What a combination! Lovely weather, Mothering Sunday, Wittenham Clumps Lambing Weekend – and very narrow roads, with carloads of mothers and children desperate to pass. Very different from the last time we rode by Wittenham Clumps, when the views were spoilt by flurries of snow. How quickly the seasons change!
