With the weather not quite up to BBQ standards, there was a good turn-out today. Westerly headwinds didn't hamper progress too much, but we did stop to check out the wind chimes at Watchfield early on.

Roads were quiet as we wended our way through the Southern Cotswolds, past the WIldlife Park at Burford (where it rained a little), and down into Bampton for lunch at the Coffee Shop - despite the cafe appearing to be disorganised, the food came out quickly and was delicious. Louis is rather enamored by the chocolate cake...

Lovely tailwinds helped the post-prandial stretch, and then made life somewhat tougher as we got back towards Uffington. Always good to support the shop there with an ice-cream stop to end the ride!
