Description:
RIDE CANCELLED - SORRY RIDE IS CANCELLED DUE TO THE PREDICTED 40/50 MPH WINDS FOR SATURDAY

I AM KEEPING AN EYE ON THE WEATHER. It is looking like we won't get a full days ride but we will be able to do something. I will make a final decision on what we are doing Friday evening, hopefully by 8pm

All-day touring ride (80-100km / 50-65 miles), lunch and possibly tea stop en route, at a riding pace of 18-22km/h (11-14mph). Not suitable for irregular riders. Climbing almost inevitable.

With more daylight and spring rapidly approaching, it's time to stretch our legs! A reasonably flat ride from Old Mill Hall in Grove, out via Stadhampton, the quiet back roads through Aston to Bampton and Clanfield where we'll take one of my favourite quiet roads through to emerge fully into the Cotswolds and make our way to Colyn St Aldwyns for lunch at their community cafÃᅵï¿œÃᅵ© (fairly basic but hot drinks and paninis) before dropping down to Lechlade. A climb to Coleshill before dropping down to Shrivenham and a return to Grove via Uffington.

This is not a hilly ride (less than 500 metres of climbing) but it does have hills. There are a few places we can detour to for a coffee stop in the morning or afternoon should the group wish to.
