Banbury lane will be our guide for this early Autumn ride into the North Oxfordshire market town.
Without much of a diversion we’ll cruise through Canons Ashby, Moreton Pinkney and Thorpe Mandeville.
On the outskirts of Banbury, Chacombe will take us away from the main arteries whilst cycle paths on the Gateway retail park gets us closer to our destination at the Hillier Garden Centre on Spiceball Park.
In contrast the return journey has plenty of twists and turns through some lesser known villages including Great Bourton, Cropredy and Appletree amongst others.
It’s a ride of two halves this one. Plenty of long straights on the way down to stretch the legs and a more sedate and scenic ride back.

Hope to see you there.
