As Dans away this week I'll lead the unofficial Tuesday night fast ride tomorrow. It's a fairly long loop taking us out round the Barringtons. I'm guessing it'll be just over 30 miles and we'll arrive back around 10.30. See you all at 7! 🖒😃
26 Jun 2017 18:10
Not for me this week. Got an early start on Weds.
27 Jun 2017 07:09
As Matt has decided not to come we should be able to get back to the windy a bit quicker. Around 10 I reckon 😉
27 Jun 2017 09:32
Sorry Steve, I've got family over.....tomorrows free
27 Jun 2017 16:03

Hi Stuart - Is it ok for visitors to attend the Go-Ride session on Sat 1st? My 2 kids are members of a Go-Ride club in Glasgow, and will be in Witney on the 1st (visiting grandparents - we're down quite often), and would love to come along on Saturday if possible. If so, what time and where do you meet?
26 Jun 2017 10:58
Sorry, Richard Goodenough, forgot to post this one!
25 Jun 2017 19:29
Thank-you Sue....at least it was dry in there :)

24 Jun 2017 09:22
24 Jun 2017 09:27
Max will definitely come along see you tomorrow.
24 Jun 2017 09:46
Max had a great time, thank you. He had a good 2hr sleep when he got home. 😂
25 Jun 2017 18:08
I thought you could have a little quiet time.😴😴😴🤣🤣
25 Jun 2017 18:10
Thankfully he's also taken on board your comment regarding his helmet and now has an open helmet and sunglasses. Again thank you for today.
25 Jun 2017 18:14
Black Mountains today : started and finished well. The bit in the middle with the lashing rain, gale force winds, thick fog, and summer clothing wasn't so good but we managed to have a great day any way and get back smiling.😊
25 Jun 2017 18:05
Keep your eyes on this over the next few day's. I am probably going to do a steady ride on Wednesday morning. I will post the times over the next couple of day's. If anyone is interested just comment.
24 Jun 2017 21:19
FYI, Pay lane (leafield across to bird in hand pub) has been well cut back, now 5 or 6 feet wide along the whole length. Lots of brambles and cuttings on ground so would probably avoid it if you run standard tubes.
24 Jun 2017 11:59
Is it any good for children on their bikes?
24 Jun 2017 20:51
Thursday night steady ride is on, 7pm from the Windrush Inn please leave a comment if your coming along
22 Jun 2017 10:15
Depends what time I finish work but I may be there aswell
22 Jun 2017 11:48
Do u think the steady ride out with Timothy tomorrow would be ok for Max (13yr old you meet last week)?
24 Jun 2017 06:49
Yes should be ok Tim will amend ride to suit

Ivan Tan Ner
Hello all, I am new to the group. I am intersted in joining you on the trip to the black mountains on Sunday. What kind of riding will you be doing? What kit do I need to bring i.e full face helmet and armour?
22 Jun 2017 18:06
Hi Ivan, it's a 40k ride with a fair bit of elevation and some rocky descents that are fast but won't require a face helmet .
22 Jun 2017 21:47
Fantastic ride put together by Dan Hickman last night. Here's some photos 😃
21 Jun 2017 05:01
Cheers Steve great photos! Never had one of me over the Ford before!
21 Jun 2017 07:15
Cheers Dan Great ride, Thanks Steve cool photos!
21 Jun 2017 07:42
Looks lovely guys. Dan, is it easy to get to on foot, thinking it looks a nice place to take the dog for a walk / swim.
21 Jun 2017 11:47
Where is it? Looks brilliant.
21 Jun 2017 20:33
It's called Duxford. It's the Thames near cote. Easy to get to on foot or bike if you park at chimney meadows. You should find it on a map but if you want better directions you'd better talk to Dan Hickman.
21 Jun 2017 20:47
Yeah it's a nice place. But better off early morning! I find 7.30 is nice and peaceful 😀 No hoodlums round at that time 😀
21 Jun 2017 21:07
Cheers Dan, i take its a popular place wiv the yooff whens it warm. 😁
