CUK Oxfordshire 125 miles - Follow the Thames 3*
Leader:
Robin Tucker
Start Time:
8:00 am
Start Location:
Wallingford Market Place
Description:
Follow the Thames from its source all the way to Wallingford. At 125 miles 200km, this is a great way to stretch beyond the regular Century distance and set a new benchmark.

We will ride from Wallingford, upriver through Abingdon, Oxford, Eynsham (25 miles/coffee) and Lechlade (50 miles/lunch) to the source of the Thames near Cirencester.  Ideally, we'll have time stroll the few hundred metres of footpath off the road to the official source - at about our 75 mile point.

Then, after taking some more refreshments in Kemble or nearby we'll head East towards the Ridgeway and roughly follow the spring line.  We'll stop for a meal at the Fox & Hounds at Uffington before returning to Wallingford.  In theory it's all downhill - in practice, there may be a few small undulations, but the route overall is quite flat.

We'll stop every 25 miles for refreshment and ride at a moderate pace, similar to the Century rides. So this will be a long day - 10pm even if everything goes exactly to plan.  The late finish is also why it's on a Saturday. We will finish in the dark so bring lights and money for food & drink.

Please let me know you are coming so I can book the main food stops for the right number of people.

NOTE it is the day of Wallingford Carnival. Please do not park in Wallingford on the carnival route: http://www.wallingfordcarnival.org.uk/about.html
