Sunday ride to Thame and Radnage

Please book lunch before 6pm Friday

Main details

Time to ride east again, enjoying a portion of the Chilterns Cycleway between Radnage and Christmas Common

Ride report

Coffee, cakes and chat? The chat started unsurprisingly with a discussion of why one of our riders had been unable to adjust headset bearings after fitting a new stem. Plenty of expertise there. What was not quite so predictable (and much less easy to solve) was the discussion on The Nature of Belief. (Adaptive evolution?) Which led to “Why are we here?” And because one thing leads to another, someone couldn’t resist: Surely, it depends what you mean by “here”. At which point we reverted to safer ground discussing the forecast downpours or perhaps just pondered a while over our americanos. Well, this is Oxford after all!
