Sunday away-day ride Burford to Lower Swell
Sunday, 18 February 2018 - 10:30am
We cancelled our October away-day ride because of high winds. So here’s another chance to enjoy Burford and the Cotswolds. Starting with coffee in Huffkins from 10am, then making our way to Lower Swell for lunch. We will find some hills and views along the way! Free car park Burford OX18 4SE. [Ed “some hills”? 1000m of ascent in 65km is a bit more than “some hills”]
The Cotswolds didn’t fail to impress, whether we were riding in the valleys or on the hill tops. The 1000 metres of descent were exhilarating and the 1000 metres of ascent were ok as long as you pedalled slowly. We were pleased to be able to offer lifts to 4 members who don’t have transport – and the parking in Burford is free.
