A pretty straightforward one this for the first club ride of the year. A run down to Banbury for tea and cakes at the Hillier Garden Centre near Spiceball Park.
Banbury lane seems like the obvious place to start and we’ll use it all the way to the A5 at Pattishall.
Once over, a change of direction takes us towards Litchborough and Maidford and then it’s on to Canons Ashby, Thorpe Mandeville and the outskirts of Banbury.
The return journey is a bit more adventurous, hopefully on one or two new roads for us through Great Bourton, Cropredy and Appletree amongst others.
Eventually back at the A5 crossing a different route home to our start point.
It’s a decent bit of mileage to get you off to a flying start in 2018.
We look forward to welcoming all riders, and especially any new riders who may wish to join the ride. For any further questions, please feel free to contact PhilJ or Peter Bayles.
