Sunday ride to Lower Heyford and Charlbury

Sunday, 27 August 2017 - 9:30am

An opportunity to see the canal boats at Lower Heyford while having coffee before a tour of country lanes to Charlbury for lunch

Ride report

One of the hottest days of the summer it seemed – ideal for coffee at Kizzies, where we were entertained by passing barges and a black swan. And enjoyed perhaps the most expensive tea in the County (but, to be fair, there were 2 tea bags and the service was exceptional). The lanes to lunch, around Chadlington and Gagingwell are among the best our County has to offer.
