Route: West Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds

by Cyclist Sharon, rides Road, MTB 📏Distance: 47 miles ⏱️ Duration: 3:44 hours 🚴 Difficulty: Intermediate 🚲 Terrain: road  Come July, I took advantage of the fair weather and took on a ride through the tranquil and picturesque Countryside of West Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds.  A cycling route in Oxfordshire is something that this blog was lacking thus far, and was very happy to pick up the gauntlet.

Route: Potters Bar & Folly Arch

by Cyclist Yoni, rides Brompton, Gravel and MTB 📏Distance: 18-18.5 miles ⏱️ Duration: 1:35 hours 🚴 Difficulty: intermediate 🚲 Terrain: road/uneven  Last Sunday we’ve taken on not only cycling up hill on a North to London route, but also 15-20 mph winds, which kept us humble throughout the course. The Folly Arch, which lies at the end of Potters Bar, was our half-way point, although if u have several hours, this can very well turn to a gravel/expert route all the way to Brookmans Park. A good cycling up hill effort if you want to practice some more than moderate…
