A lovely Spring ride - go at your own pace over 30, 60 or 75 miles through pretty villages and lush countryside along the hills and valleys by the River Thames. The routes wind from south Oxfordshire up to Abingdon and into the Vale of the White Horse through a landscape of beautiful half-timbered cottages, green riverbanks and open downland, it’s a great start to the cycling season. Food, beer tent and live music welcomes you at the finish!
