Sunday ride to Twyford and Launton

Sunday, 8 September 2019 - 9:30am

Please book lunch before Friday 6pm

Main details

A flattish ride out to the lovely quiet roads north of Bicester and back via the Otmoor villages.

Ride report

If you remove your helmet, take care where you put it – leave it in the basket of someone else’s bike and you might never see it again 🙁
Apart from that unfortunate beginning, this exit from Oxford is the most picturesque and cycle friendly by far, little used because of the distance to a convenient coffee stop.
