Sunday ride to Nr Murcott and Quainton

Sunday, 6 September 2015 - 9:30am

Ride report

To manage the large group of riders tempted by this sunniest of Sundays we split into 2 groups. The ambience at our coffee stop (Panshill Fishery) has improved since we last visited, although they still haven’t quite mastered the logistics of serving coffee to large groups, their coffee machine looking very much like the one in your kitchen that you have been meaning to update for some time. The group included a returner whose dubious claim to fame is included in one of the photos and an ex-member who decided to drop in from Sheffield “as the route seemed interesting”. But we missed one of our faster riders, who was in Aalborg, Denmark, having been selected to race for England.
