Report:
Good day with fine weather but chilly northerly wind. We changed lunch venue to Black Horse near Checkendon – only rolls on menu but a simpler option. One minor mishap with grazed elbow and brake hood. Nice to greet Bridget, who normally rides with the Oxford Section. Back in Wantage by 4.00 p.m. Total distance: 93km [58 miles].
Distance:
93.00 km (57.79 mi)
