Sunday ride to Ramsden and Combe
Sunday, 2 December 2018 - 9:30am
Ride or Event Navigation
A not too challenging ride to the northwest taking in nice country lanes north of Leafield and Charlbury before a short ride back from lunch.
“Not too challenging” the ride leader promised. Umm, not sure about that. Dividing the metres climbed by the distance in km gives 10.5. That’s actually quite hilly Mr Ride Leader! And Mr Website was remiss for not putting a gentle warning sign on the original map (see photo).
Mr Ride Leader has also promised to remember his Garmin next time! Promises, promises…
Several punctures today, including a tubeless tyre which wouldn’t inflate, apparently because the rider had forgotten to bring the required lighter fuel and lighter https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abH9__WKMhc.
Disappointingly, a standard inner tube had to be fitted instead.
