Ride report

It was nice weather for our ride to Cogges Farm for coffee. We noticed they had Shetland ponies in the paddock by the outdoor seating area this time rather than the goats we have seen before. Our lunch was at Charlbury Garden Centre and they had plenty of food available this time. We last went there for lunch on a Sunday to find they had run out of anything more than cake despite opening the next day which was a Bank Holiday Monday. It wasn’t too far from lunch to get home although we did cycle very close to the biomass plant at Cassington which was to blow up in a lightning strike the next day.
The half-day coffee ride suffered a mishap – snapped chain. But we sorted it!
