Sunday ride to Woodstock and Upper Heyford

Sunday, 25 October 2015 - 9:30am


Ride report

This Sunday was probably the one Sunday of the year when the autumnal colours were on display in every shade from yellow to gold under clear skies and a strong sun. By chance, our route to lunch led us through country lanes where the variety of colours was most evident. By next week, most of those leaves will be down on the ground, setting treacherous traps for unwary cyclists. We started with 12 riders, met another 4 at coffee and then 4 more for lunch. We are pleased that, through the information on our website, we can offer this degree of flexibility, as it encourages more people to get out on their bikes. And that is CTC’s catchphrase: “Help people to cycle and keeps cycling”.
