Sunday ride to Thame and Quainton

Sunday, 6 May 2018 - 12:00am

See below map for lunch arrangement. Please book before weekend.

A hilly ride after coffee 750m of ascent (yes, Brill again!)

Ride report

We were pleased to see 22 riders out today. Splitting into 2 groups with 2 leaders and 2 sweepers now seems to be standard for our club. Too hot to eat outside, so 13 huddled together inside the George and Dragon in Quainton. On the way home, there was an opportunity to skip the climb to Brill, but everyone opted to give it a go and join in the photo at the top. But where was the ice cream van?
