Sunday ride to the spokes of Brill Hill

Sunday, 20 June 2021 - 9:30am

A short ride to coffee, followed by 3 ascents and 2 descents of the Brill hills where we will have a picnic lunch (provided) before 2 more descents and the remaining ascent before returning to Oxford – about 1000m of ascent in 86k. Picnic lunch will be provided* – if you would like to make a voluntary donation to Kates Home Nursing www.kateshomenursing.org/
*let ride leader know if any special dietary requirements.

    Everest 8849
    Ben Nevis 1345
    Yr Wyddfa 1085
    Brandon (Eire) 952
    Scarfell Pike 978
    Slieve Donard (NI) 850
    Total 14059
    So 17 of us doing 1005m each cumulatively climbed all of these. And a bit more.
