Sunday ride to Lechlade and Great Barrington

Sunday, 15 November 2015 - 10:30am

10am start from Woodford Way free car park Witney OX28 6PT

Ride report

It was touch and go whether to cancel this ride. The 6 who drove to the Witney car park weren’t quite sure, but their minds were made up when another 2 joined them, having successfully ridden the 20k or so to the start. A few others sent their apologies, wisely mindful of the high winds. Looking at other local clubs’ websites, it seems that opinions were equally divided. We met a large group of Abingdon Freewheelers at coffee and several other clubs along the way, so it was nice to know we were not alone in opting to face the gusting south westerly winds. The weather calmed somewhat after lunch and we were blown home for the final 20k, which included the picturesque lanes south of the Windrush. We’ll come back and do this again in the summer.
