Sunday ride to Frilford and Aston

Sunday, 7 January 2018 - 9:30am

See below map for lunch arrangements

After Hinksey Hill, a flatish ride to get you back into the flow of Sunday cycling. A disappointing ride if you need lots of hills to work off all that seasonal food!

Ride report

Seeing the met office forecast for just one degree on Sunday morning at 9am might have discouraged a few riders. Yes it was cold, but no, we didn’t feel cold. Or perhaps the more daunting prospect was the 18 mph north easterly, gusting to 28 mph that would face us for the final 25k. The first threat can be reduced by having the right clothes and the second by riding in the wheels of the strongest rider. And if that rider happens to be the broadest, even better.
