Inspired by Gerard’s new blog, Oxford Cycling Routes, here is the bike ride I did today with Brian and Andrew:
“Guided” by Brian’s 15 year old map, we tried to take a short cut across a farm between Wendlebury and Charlton-on-Otmoor (between about 42-45km)…I wouldn’t advise replicating this…I got by OK on my 25mm tires but it wasn’t the best! Luckily it was dry as it would have been miserable in muddy conditions.
Here is a before and after shot of today’s ride, an 80km loop from Oxford, west into a strong headwind to Witney and then back. It took us a little under 3 hours.
