Saturday Afternoon Ride from Grove 2*
Des Higgs
Start Time:
1:00 pm
Start Location:

This ride will take us through the villages of Denchworth, Charney, Fyfield, Tubney, Gozards Ford, Abingdon, Drayton and Steventon where we will stop for coffee tea and/or cakes at Q Gardens. From there we will head home via Hendred, Ginge, Lockinge and Lains Barn before returning to Grove.

In total there are not many hills and none of them very hard. Distance is in the region of 44 km.
The ride had all the ingredients for perfection:excellent weather and riding companions .The only thing to marr it was the road manners of two or three idiots in cars ,but we all survived through it thinking there seems to be more bad drivers on the road in Oxfordshire on a Saturday afternoon than I had thought!We continued to a well deserved tea stop at Q Gardens.The return journey was uneventful and peaceful with very little traffic .Thank- you one and all.
44.00 km (27.34 mi)
