Sunday ride to Lower Heyford and Charlbury

Sunday, 14 September 2014 - 9:30am

Ride report

Nice to see Kizzies open again after months of rumour that its future was in some doubt. But by the time we arrived, bacon was in short supply and the cakes hadn’t yet arrived. So it was drinks only – which made us question the large sign at the front: “Only food bought here may be consumed on the premises”. As one of our riders quipped: “If only..” Ten was too many for The Bull at Charlbury, so we switched to the Bell Hotel round the corner. Which reminds me, if you do want to join our ride at lunch time, do let the ride leader know. And, as a precaution, always have the leader’s phone number with you.
