CTC Bicester 40-miler to Winslow
Sat 3 October 2015 - 10:00am
Bicester Leisure Centre, Queens Avenue, Bicester OX26 2NR
The first of what is planned to be a regular morning ride on the first Saturday of the month from Bicester. These rides are intended to be slightly longer than our Third Sunday rides and would suit those who've been comfortable on the longer Sunday morning rides and would like to go a bit further.
For our first outing, we'll be heading eastwards to Winslow for a light snack at Jennie Wren's tea room. This is a true cyclists cafe. Our route will take us out via Poundon, Gawcott, Padbury and Thornborough, returning through Botolph Claydon, Charndon and Blackthorn (full details through link below). It's a round trip of about 40 miles, which we'll cover at a steady pace of about 12-13 mph on the flat, but with a few climbs (and descents) on the way.
4 riders out on our first longer Saturday ride. Ride details through the button above. Fuller report to come.
