Come and join us on this popular bike ride, cycling through pretty villages and lush Spring countryside alongside the River Thames as it winds from south Oxfordshire up to Abingdon and into the Vale of the White Horse. Offering a choice of 30, 60 and 70 mile routes through a landscape of beautiful half-timbered cottages, green riverbanks and colourful marketplaces, it’s a great start to the cycling season.
