Regular Wantage Ride 2*
Leader:
John Tranter
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:
WMP
Description:
Don't miss this one (and note it starts in Wantage)! In response to good discussion at the AGM, this is a 2* all day ride. Almost entirely flat, leisurely riding - but with the chance to see Oxford from some very different angles. Out via Hanney and Fyfield, down Cumnor Hill and then a cunning route parallel to the A34 up to beautiful Wytham and Wolvercote. Down through wealthy North Oxford to lunch at the amazing Zappi's bike cafe in the heart of town. Then my patented secret offroad route out of town along the river and through to Botley. Back up Cumnor Hill (we will need some exercise..) and home via Wooton, Tubney and Charney Bassett. Total distance about 50 miles.

Report:
Thanks to everyone for such an encouraging turn-out on a cold and misty morning. Fourteen riders, and quite a few doing their longest ever ride - which was exactly what this ride was designed for! All went according to plan, with some nice views across Port Meadow and an interesting loop down the Oxford Canal and through Jericho. Zappi's bike cafe was a great success, although we pretty much swamped the lone server with our orders. The secret riverside route to Botley is always fun and after the one climb of the day, it was pretty straightforward to home. Congratulations to all for the achievement and thanks for your company.
Distance:
80.47 km (50.00 mi)
