Route: This year’s Cycling UK Oxfordshire Century ride will start from Wallingford and take us through two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty – the Chiltern Hills and the North Wessex Downs. This is a led ride at a touring pace with tea, lunch and coffee stops along the way; we will aim to cover 100 miles in about 11 hours.
There’ll also be a 50 mile ride, initially following the same route then returning to Wallingford after the morning coffee break.
Note there is free all-day parking in the Goldsmiths Lane long-stay car park behind the Market Place. Please let Steve know if you are planning to join us by Thursday 22 June as we need numbers for the refreshment stops.
