Report:
A beautiful morning and a leisurely amble around the vale taking in 5 local villages with a stop at Childrey cafe.We left grove headed out to Denchworth and on to Lyford where we admired the church, pond and cotswold stone dovecote for the second time in as many days! Leaving Lyford we touched Charney and headed to Goosey, before turning left on the Faringdon road and on to Childrey for a well deserved coffee and cake. A more relaxed pace than recent rides to accommodate our two irregular riders Beth and April who were visiting. From Childrey some regulars headed off for some hill climbing, whilst rest continued the ride along the footpath out of Childrey, through Challow admiring the alpacas, and Denchworth (peacocks and all), back to Grove.
