Sunday ride to Newington and Watlington

Sunday, 23 February 2014 - 9:30am

Ride report

Twenty five mile per hour winds cramped our style somewhat, but there were good moments too as we flew along at 15mph without having to pedal 🙂
Newington is the current record holder for the most expensive cup of tea in Oxfordshire, while The Chequers in Watlington is to be congratulated on its impressive menu choice and good food. We’ll be back in the summer when we can enjoy the large beer garden.
