Oxford Special 2*
Leader:
John Tranter
Start Time:
10:00 am
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Don't miss this one (and note it starts at Old Mill Hall)! This is a 2* all day ride, which is a repeat of a popular ride from last year. Almost entirely flat, leisurely riding - but with the chance to see Oxford from some very different angles. Out via Hanney and Fyfield, down Cumnor Hill and then a cunning route parallel to the A34 up to beautiful Wytham and Wolvercote. Down through wealthy North Oxford to lunch at the amazing Zappi's bike cafe in the heart of town. Then my patented secret offroad route out of town along the river and through to Botley. Back up Cumnor Hill (we will need some exercise..) and home via Wooton, Tubney and Charney Bassett. Total distance about 45 miles.
Report:
A very good turn-out on a less than perfect weather day. Thanks to all who came out. All went according to plan. We just managed to avoid the torrential rain on the edge of Oxford, thanks to the tried and tested method of stopping to put waterproofs on. That soon stopped it. Zappi's was as cool as ever and very efficient with lunch. After Cumnor Hill, Andy and Paul decided to form an elite breakaway group while the rest of us carried on at a nice pace. Rob suffered a puncture at Tubney, but the combined wisdom of the crowd and Richard's CO2 canister sorted him out. Back in Grove by 3.30.
Distance:
70.81 km (44.00 mi)
