Sunday away-day ride to Wellesbourne and Ilmington

Sunday, 11 September 2016 - 9:30am

This is our September away-day ride, starting 9:30am at Broughton, OX15 5ED

Ride report

Three our regulars were missing, 2 from injury and 1 with civic duties to perform. The remaining 5 enjoyed new roads and fine weather in an unfamiliar part of north Oxfordshire and Warwickshire. One of our riders suffered from an attack of what was later diagnosed as “Mavic howl” or the “Mavic scream of death”. If you have Mavic wheels, you might like to google this before you get caught out.
