7 riders enjoyed the increasingly quiet roads instead of Kane & co in Russia, with the ride leader being able to just get to the end of School Lane in time to meet the group leaving (due to work commitments & the A417 roadworks not helping).

Initially flat section into nagging headwind via A338 ,with Hanneys and Garford detour, onto Marcham and the first passage of Cothill via Black Horse Lane. Route then lead through Dry Sandford & Wootton (with the only slight GPS induced reading mishap of the ride) onto the climb through Old Boar's Hill with some nice views of the spires of Oxford in the sunshine in the distance as reward.

From there we bombed down Foxcombe road followed by the brilliant section of new (and mostly downhill!) road past Bagley Wood that I think everyone enjoyed and a loop through Kennington with the dragging incline to the bridge over the A34 & onto Bayworth.

That lead us to the pretty much the last (and challenging) hill of the day to set us up for another downhill section of Foxcombe road & Fox Lane. After that we finally got the advantage of some tail wind which helped us past Honeybottom Lane , Cothill (again), past the Doghouse pub and Tubney . About a half mile section of the A420 with more wind assistance to the Fyfield Wick turn lead us to a fast blast to Charney Bassett where Paul (briefly, sorry) found fast legs. From there it was back via Denchworth with hardly contested dash & home where some may still have watched the end of the game ?
