Sunday ride to Nettlebed (group 3)
Sunday, 2 May 2021 - 10:30am
Please do not book for this ride until the other group(s) is/are full
Scenic route mostly along quiet back roads into the Chilterns with some hills between Watlington and Ewelme.
The map is an embedded link from Ride with GPS. You can zoom in to see the route in as much detail as you like. For example, you can zoom in (using the + sign) to see exactly where the start is.

One of those variable weather days. Depending on what you were wearing, it was a bit too warm with the sun out, or a bit too cold when the sun went in! Still, it was – save a few drops near Nettlebed – a dry day with lots of sunshine. Five set off from the start, picking up Christine in Cuddesdon. Of course the hills hit after Watlington – a lot of Watlington Hill seems – as a hill – very much so-so when decending, but when climbing seems so so long!
It got pretty chilly (with a few rain drops) at Nettlebed, but the Cheese Shed was efficient, with their toastie menu (“The Toastie”) making for efficient service. A flatter but quiet route took us back to Oxford.
