Sunday ride to Woodstock and Lower Heyford

Sunday, 26 January 2014 - 9:30am

Ride report

Nine brave souls out today – a respectable number given the dreadful weather forecast. We had a retirement when one of our riders got soaked by a car overtaking at speed through 4 inches of water. It was spectacular to watch, but no one laughed until she had headed off for home and was out of earshot. It was one of those days when a shortcut home was called for (see photo of soggy map).
