Sunday ride to Waterperry and Long Crendon

Sunday, 26 November 2017 - 9:30am

See below map for lunch arrangements

Main details

Isis Cyclists (Rides for Women) will lead to coffee, after which we head north up one of Brill’s easier climbs.

Ride report

A cold and sunny morning saw quite a gathering at Broad Street, so we split into 2 groups for the ride to coffee. Although there was no ice to worry about, we nevertheless avoided a potentially muddy Barrack’s Lane. We also avoided the first section of the Gidley Way climb, as we made our way to Waterperry. Six continued after coffee, but only 2 had time for stop for lunch at The Eight Bells in Long Crendon, where they even had gluten free bread to accompany the soup.
