Fifth Sunday – Anything goes! May be a morning or all-day ride, starting in Wantage or elsewhere, and at Blue or Red grade, including refreshment stops appropriate to the ride. A chance to do something different...

Based upon a route in Jack Thurston's Lost Lanes book and taking in most of the best bits of the Cotswolds.

Starting from the main car park at Hanborough Station (£2 all day on a Sunday) the route heads north to Great Rollright before heading west to Stow-on-the Wold (highest of the Cotswold towns). The route heads south through the Slaughters and Bourton-on-the-Water before heading back east via the Barringtons and Burford.

The route is 106km and only modestly hilly with about 1000m of ascent. It is rather lumpy though and gets a red rating.

Lunch and refreshments TBD but likely to include Wyatts Garden Centre near Great Rollright for morning coffee.
