Sunday ride to Thrupp and Lower Heyford

Sunday, 30 July 2017 - 9:30am

The ride will be led by Isis (rides for Women) as far as coffee at Annies in Thrupp

Ride report

The lanes in the north of the County are always delightful and we still manage to find the occasional new one. The few drops of rain before lunch made us fear the worst for the rest of the journey home. But we were fortunate: the threatened downpour and lightning held off until we had almost reached Oxford.
