Sunday ride to Witney and Faringdon

Sunday, 29 October 2017 - 9:30am

A flat ride to coffee with Isis Cyclists, followed by more easy roads to Faringdon, with just one hill approaching Faringdon. We will return to Oxford via the Vale of White Horse.

Ride report

Most noteworthy was the unusually large group assembled in Broad Street. There were 24 from Oxford Cycling plus another dozen or so from our sister club, Isis, who regularly join us on the last Sunday of the month. We are used to splitting into 2 groups to cope safely with the numbers, but this is the first time we have split into 3 groups.
