AM. Cycle 126km, steady, HR135(163) ascent 1065m
Just three of us out today. I met up with Chris Hearn at Martyrs’ Memorial and we picked up Clive Thomas on the way through Eynsham. Following Mike Carty’s route from last year, there was a stiff headwind all the way out to the cafe stop at the Cotswold Food Store, but the weather stayed dry and mostly sunny and some fantastic views. Fuelled by cake and coffee we got more of a tailwind coming back home to help us over the many Cotswold climbs. Clive split off at Charlbury for his home in Eynsham and Chris and I made our way steadily back to Oxford via Bletchingdon and Islip.
