Sunday ride to Brightwell-cum-Sotwell and Watlington

Sunday, 17 June 2018 - 9:30am

A ride east into the Chilterns with a lot of hills after coffee to prepare us for the IoW.

Ride report

The hills were as promised, with most of the ascent coming in the relatively short distance between coffee and lunch. But the hills were temporarily forgiven as we revelled in the long fast descent into Watllington where lunch awaited. The lanes around Maidensgrove and Russell’s Water are some of the finest in the county.
