Oxford, reading, newbury. Abingdon area....

#1 Post by dispersion » Sat Mar 29, 2014 6:15 pm

After spending most of the day riding thought if it's the same weather tomorrow, anyone around this area fancy a meet?

I am still getting to grips with my bike so just a decent ride, also not living here as of 2 weeks time so might be able to meet some people this end before the rally. (Still working on getting dates off work)

Drop us a pm if you fancy it! I am willing to ride elsewhere too, swindon etc...

I'm from Oxford and to be honest, there aren't that many good roads around here! The only really good area for biking roads down south is around Devon & Cornwall imo
I have a photo album, look, see! ---->

I think abongdon/did of/want age have some good roads, always take the back roads from reading to Oxford to see the misses, some good view too!

Was more after just some people to ride with, not really bothered where.

Not here for much longer though :(

There's few around the Banbury/Northants border that are quite good, but the good bits tend to be broken up into small sections divided by long and boring bits.

Some roads near Newbury have some nice bends that can be fun. Some near Hungerford too. A33 near Basingstoke end is pretty sweet too.
