OM Cycling Club Cotswold Ride Out
The OM Cycling Club met on Saturday 27th July and enjoyed changeable conditions for a 45-mile ride around the Cotswolds followed by a refuelling barbeque, cooked expertly by the last Master, Jonathan Leigh and his wife Emma.
Interestingly timed to coincide with the last day of the Tour de France, the 27 strong peleton pedalled from the Bishops’ house in Dunfield (Steven Bishop CO 1969-73) and set a good pace ahead of the stop at Far Peak; the promise of coffee and cake being quite a lure in the inclement weather. Part 2 of the ride was in sunnier conditions and took us up to the Windrush Valley and then down through some beautiful villages back to Dunfield.
We had a full range of cycling ability and ages with a couple of electric bikes, a septuagenarian or two and some whippet like 24-year olds – all are very welcome.
Thank you to Steven and Cecilia for hosting such an enjoyable day and barbeque and we look forward to next year’s continental plan.
