Upper Thames

Description

209km cycling event starting from Cholsey, E of Didcot. Controls at Waterperry, Chipping Norton and Cholsey., plus 4 information controls.

A gently rolling ride through the Chilterns, Cotswolds and the flatter West Oxfordshire plain. Controls are at commercial cafes, and plenty of hot food (included in the entry) at the end. PLEASE ENTER ON-LINE

Note that on-line entry is discounted - you do NOT need a PayPal account to use this. On-line entries close midnight 31/10 - after that you will have to enter on the line, when the entry fee will be £10 (regardless of AUK or CTC membership) Route is broadly to outskirts of Henley, over Chilterns to Waterperry (cafe), past Bicester into Cotswolds to Chipping Norton (cafe), via Brize Norton to near Stanford-in-the-Vale, back to Cholsey. Given the time of year some of the roads are likely to be mucky, hence my request (not demand) that mudguards be fitted in order to avoid problems with the controls. Cholsey has a station on the London Paddington-Reading-Oxford line.
