Sunday ride to Frilford

Sunday, 25 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).

Mixed on-road and off-road route exploring the bridleways, byways and back roads of Oxfordshire. Nothing too technical but there may be a bit of mud after Millets. Can be done on a hybrid and 32mm+ tyres strongly recommended.

Ride report

Five of us set off to explore the byways, bridleways and back roads of Oxfordshire, starting with the Sustrans National Cycle Network route 5 along the river where we carefully made our way around walkers and other cyclists. We had a brief stop in Abingdon to fix a puncture where we bumped into Ellen and Steve.

With blue skies ahead, we rode through the mud, grass, and puddles on the bridleway from Drayton to Venn Mills. No swimming occurred thankfully and Barbara’s off-road bike was nominated as the most well-equipped bike for the route! An unusually warm and sunny late October Sunday meant Millet’s Farm was quite busy but an outdoors lunch was enjoyed. With a few showers along the way and a shortcut through Cumnor, we made it back to Oxford for 2.30pm.
