Sunday ride to Woodstock and Steeple Aston

Sunday, 10 February 2019 - 9:30am

Main details

With most of the hills coming before lunch, we head north to North Aston –  about as far north as we go on a winter ride.

Ride report

It was a wet and windy day and the four people who were foolhardy enough to continue on to lunch got drenched in icy rain on the way home (better on the way home than on the way to lunch!). It would have been 5 for lunch had not an urgent phone call alerted a rider that he was about to become a granddad and was needed elsewhere. We celebrated the event with coffee and cake.
