Sunday ride to Waterperry and Chalgrove

Sunday, 29 January 2017 - 9:30am

This ride is led by Isis ladies group as far as coffee

Ride report

In defiance of the wettest forecast of the year, 17 riders made it to coffee. But despite its being the wettest forecast of the year, it didn’t actually rain that much until about 3pm. On the way to lunch, the right turn south at Chalgrove (see map) was a difficult moment for those familiar with the route:¬†being just 100 metres from our promised lunch venue, The Red Lion, and then being led away on a 15km loop ran the risk of hunger overcoming loyalty to our ride leader.
