Sunday ride to Frilford and Lechlade

Sunday, 1 May 2022 - 9:30am

A ride along both sides of the Thames valley, mostly fairly flat with a few hills here and there.

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.

Ride report

Broad Street was full of stalls and caterers due to it being May morning, still with quite a lot of people walking about. Alas we did not have quite a few people for the ride, just the 4 of us. As there was a Ghost Tour posted where we were, I considered opening the ride to ghosts, but no ghosts appeared that I could see. It was a grey ride with some drops of rain (it was a bank holiday weekend after all) to coffee at Millets. After coffee we had a head wind all the way to lunch, with what little rain there was clearing. John asked if the pub at Lechlade was the one with flamingoes. Not that I remember I replied, but when we arrived, John said look, flamingoes. Indeed there were, you could not dispute it….The ride back after lunch was brisker than the morning’s ride, due to the generous tail wind.
