Sunday ride to Twyford and Launton

Sunday, 15 March 2020 - 9:30am

Main details

A longer ride to coffee at volunteer-run Twyford Village Store followed by a ‘pub lunch’ at Launton. A couple of hills before coffee but otherwise fairly flat.

Ride report

A wet ride in parts, a VERY wet ride in other parts! A friendly reception at the volunteer run Twyford Community shop for much needed refreshment. Nine of us made a brave loop to the welcome and welcoming Bull Inn. The run home was drier and we were accompanied through Otmoor by a time-confused barn owl – it wasn’t that dark.
