Ride or Event Navigation
Don’t forget the clocks go back the day of this ride – don’t get there too early! – but do bring lights in case we are delayed and/or the weather is dull. We will visit Cogges Farm café for our coffee break followed by a tour to the east via Minster Lovell, Langley, Leafield, Stonesfield and Combe to the George and Dragon at Long Hanborough for lunch. Then it is a short ride home via Worton. There are some hills after coffee.
There was a big turnout for this ride with over 16 riders in Broad Street and one joining on the way. The day started in lovely sunshine which unfortunately disappeared and was replaced by quite heavy rainfall before we had even made it to coffee at Cogges Farm. It rained the whole time we were at coffee and for a few miles after but then cleared up to be another nice, sunny day for the rest of the ride. The rain made the roads really filthy though and led me to have to clean my bike, with the clocks going back as well, we are truly now into the autumn/winter season.
