Sunday ride to Witney and Burford

Sunday, 16 March 2014 - 9:30am

Ride report

The map doesn’t quite match the Garmin record. That’s because I have updated the route map to reflect suggestions for improvement. Today it felt as though summer had really arrived (even though we are hardly into spring). Bare white legs aplenty, scanty tops and fingerless mitts replacing winter gloves. And sunscreen! With 3 hours 40 minutes of riding and another hour or so in the garden of the Royal Oak, we got a healthy dose of vitamin D. The return journey from Burford, north of the A40 to Eynsham was, as always, a delight.
Another record broken, with 17 for lunch. And 2 more new faces – we hope you enjoyed your ride.
