sunny intervals
There are occasional days this time of year that provide a welcome foretaste of the long sunny days of summer that (we all hope) lie ahead. Today was such a day, just a lovely sunny clear Spring day to be out the bike.

8 riders gathered at the start by Bicester Leisure Centre, 5 from Wantage and 3 (Mel, Jo and Neil) from Bicester Millenium CC, with whom CTC Oxfordshire is working to put on a programme of accessible social cycle rides from Bicester this year. It was a sunny and fresh morning as we set off westwards out of town towards Bucknell...

Full report and some pictures to come. Thanks to Adrian for route details below.
