First Sunday – An all-day ride starting from Wantage. The ride will be Blue or Red grade and include lunch and maybe other refreshment stops - expect to be be back by 17:30 (or 30 minutes before sunset during winter months).

A ride to the edges of the Cotswolds and the pleasant banks of the Rivers Windrush and Coln.

We'll head northeast to Burford via Bampton and Carterton where we'll follow the Windrush before turning to the south alongside the Coln to Fairford where we will take refreshments. The route back to Wantage will be via Lechlade and Faringdon. As usual an optional coffee stop in Wantage at the end of the ride.

The route is bang on 100km but with only 600m of climbing this is definitely at the easier end of a metric tonne ride! We should be back in Wantage no later than 3.30pm.
