Sunday ride to Witney and Frilford Heath

Sunday, 26 February 2017 - 9:30am

The ride will be led by Isis ladies as far as coffee in Witney. The full day ride is a true winter ride with lunch being close to home.

Ride report

This ride had it all: wind that strengthened as the day went on, some rain, a puncture, various worldly goods scattered on the road – and even a little sunshine. Nineteen riders from Oxford City and another ten or so from Isis made this a large group and the discrepancies in pace made it a challenge to manage. But we eventually found room for everyone in 2 cafés in Witney.
