Sunday ride to Lower Heyford and Enstone

Sunday, 9 August 2015 - 9:30am

There are a couple of short sections on tracks (Sustrans route 5)

Ride report

Twenty at coffee is as many as we could have hoped for and the perfectly manageable (on 28mm tyres) tracks of Sustrans route 5 were new to many of us. Looking back, it was quite fun stepping aside into the nettles and brambles to let the horses through (see photo). Such a memorable route is perhaps to be expected from a leader who has ridden the entire length of every road on Landranger 164!
