Sunday ride to Thame and Crowell

Sunday, 21 July 2019 - 9:30am

Please book lunch before Friday 6pm

It’s been some time since we’ve been out along the Phoenix Trail into the western slopes of the Chilterns – with the lovely descent into Chinnor..

Ride report

With 21 for coffee (including 4 new riders), we decided to split into 2 groups and to book the upstairs at the Treacles Tea Rooms in Thame.  One of our groups stopped to help a stranded tourist (Dutch?) who was miles from help with a broken chain. He was lucky we a chain tool and the right size links.
