Cotswolds Day Trip
Provisionally the 9th September. Away day ride in the Cotswolds for club members/friends/2nd claim/.
All the same as last year.
This is a social event covering 60miles starting from and finishing in Burford (just off the A40 past Witney, Oxfordshire). It passes through Chipping Norton, Chipping Campden, Broadway, Snowshill, Bourton-on-the Water and back to Burford. It would be the same type of riding as with the WhiteWizz allowing for varying abilities with cafe stops along the route and plenty of conversation.
We would meet in Burford (outside Huffkins cafe on the High Street A361 or in the main car park) on the Sunday morning 9am, allowing people enough time to drive to Burford, parking, get ready etc.
Date: September 10th 2017
Parking: There is a car park just off Church lane in Burford. It was free last year but bring loose change just in case. There is also a ladies and gents toilet there (about 20p).
Route: All country lanes, beautiful countryside and villages. As below.
Pace: It's a social ride so some riders will have to wait at the top of hills. It is hilly so you would need to be a regular A grouper as a minimum standard.
Jersey: HHCC jerseys if you have one but they are not compulsory.
Weather: If heavy rain is forecast then it would be postponed as few people would want to spend a day out in bad weather.
Cafe stops: Bourton-on-the Water. Also, we will probably have a coffee in Burford before we set off. Huffkins is closed in the morning so we can go to The Priory just near/same side as Church Lane. We also have a late lunch or tea and scones at the end so may well use the Priory for this as they have a nice courtyard at the back.
