A fair but chilly start at Woodstock for the four riders. With the forecast for rain later decisions about jackets and gloves were required!

We had a very pleasant ride north via lots of Cotswold villages in the dry with actually some blue sky in the distance. The toughest lumpy section was just before the planned stop and it just started to drizzle as we arrived at Wyatts Farm Shop bang on 11am as planned.

Very quiet in the café today so a quick service of bacon baps and as we heard the rain on the roof most had seconds of cake!

Starting off was quite chilly and the rain, although not heavy, was steady so we glimpsed the Rollright Stones through the hedge but decided to stop another time.

The ride back through Chipping Norton and Charlbury was steady and so was the rain by now. So we got a bit of a move on and was back in Woodstock in plenty of time and just before the worst of the rain started.

A very pleasant route, lots of views and quiet lanes. Will definitely repeat a version of this ride in the summer.
