Sunday ride to Waterperry and Wheatley

Sunday, 19 December 2021 - 9:30am

This route was last done in the winter of 2018 when we encountered the flood at Cuddesdon that had a floating car in it. Hoping that won’t be the case this year. Lunch is at the Motorway services which means it should be quick with plenty of choice even at this busy time of year.

Ride report

There was a good turnout considering it was the Sunday before Christmas. It was a very foggy and murky day with our lights needed for safety and cold fingers and toes being a common complaint. Normally our efforts up Chilton Hill are rewarded with stunning views but we could only see about 15 yards max today. It was very atmospheric though.
