Oxfordshire Century (100 mile) Ride 3* Add to Calendar
Contact:
Steve Swanton - [javascript protected email address]
Start Time:
8:00 am
Start Location:
Clover Place car park, Eynsham
Description:
The classic annual Century ride organised by Cycling UK Oxfordshire. Challenge yourself to cover 100 miles, but enjoy company and the support of the group on the way.

This year's century will start at 8am from the Clover Place car park in Eynsham (Grid Ref SP432094) - Google Map.

The provisional route is shown below. We'll be heading northwards across the ironstone country of North Oxfordshire climbing steadily to the top of the Cotswold escarpment where we will stop for coffee at Wyatt's Farm Team Room, After the break, we will drop into Warwickshire, crossing the Stour and continuing into the Avon valley. Lunch will be taken at Wellesbourne.

After some very pleasant rolling countryside in the afternoon, we'll climb back into the Cotswolds, the easy way, through the Evenlode Gap, with a well-earned break in Kingham. The final quarter is predominantly downhill, interrupted by a short haul out of the Evenlode valley before a drop to the Windrush. We'll return to Eynsham through Cogges and South Leigh. Total distance just over 100 miles.

This will be a led ride at a steady pace of 12-14 mph. Riders are welcome to join us for all or part of the ride (meeting us en route by prior arrangement), making your own century if you want to.

Coffee at Wyatt's Tea Room, Hill Barn Farm, nr Great Rollright (SP313315)
Lunch at Wellesbourne
Tea at Kingham
Estimated finish ~7:00 to 7:15pm

Due to the popularity of this ride, we expect to split into 2 (or even 3) groups. To help with organisation, please let Steve know if you are planning to come by Friday 19 May, and if you would prefer to join a slightly slower group.
