Sunday ride to Thame and Charlton-on-Otmoor

Sunday, 21 February 2016 - 9:30am

Due to strong winds, this ride is recommended for experienced riders only

Ride report

One of our riders had a nasty fall coming round the slippery bend opposite the entrance to Waterperry Gardens, so we stopped there for coffee instead of continuing on to Thame. Winds were gusting up to 42 mph, which is about our limit. We don’t mind riding into a headwind; it’s the sudden gusts, particularly those from our left, which are disconcerting.
