Sunday ride to Waterperry and Oxford Welcome Break Services

Sunday, 16 December 2018 - 9:30am

A short winter ride with a couple of hills to keep out the winter chill. A veritable choice of dining options awaits at the service area.

Ride report

A ride perfectly sandwiched between between periods of heavy rain. Starting in a slight frost saw our sweeper avoid the first hill of the day by throwing his bike into a pothole causing a severe pinch puncture and a lift home from a local Good Samaritan.
