Ride report

The route was beautiful and new or newish to some of us, so it was nice to re-explore this part of Oxfordshire – steep three hills but also rewarding down hills and the coffee stop was really nice, with cheese toasties and miniature banana bread (with chocolate on top) welcome as we reached it after noon. We met the first group who had just been served and it was nice to chat and hang out with them in the sun for a while, until it became chilly and we quickly finished refreshments, added layers and carried on. Thanks to Liz for this excellent (yet again!) route.
