Two-wheeled trundling

On Sunday, as it remained dry, I took the Bandit for a spin.

As the bike was warming up I thought ‘North? South? East? West?’

In the end the decision was made for me; due to excessive nagging from Sammi, I had to drop Vin’s new headcollar to the yard.


The exact route for the mini-adventure was:

  • Witney
  • Ascott-under-Wychwood
  • Chipping Norton
  • Stow-on-the-Wold
  • Moreton-in-Marsh
  • Chipping Campden
  • Stratford-upon-Avon
  • Banbury
  • Deddington
  • Woodstock
  • Long Hanborough
  • Witney

Frequent breaks were taken en route for hot chocolate, the odd pasty (or two), and the occasional photo op (like this)










Total distance:
97 miles

Frame of mind:

It was a lovely day; motorbiking, thinking, stopping, looking, beveraging, mulling-over.

This should give you a snapshot of the route:

    How was my Sunday? Not as good as yours, by the looks of it, as I spent most of it decorating – but did manage to bag a couple of caches in the afternoon just before the sun went down.

    Which was nice.

      I’m not planning on doing anything major this year, around the house. Apart from moving house.

      I cleaned the bike’s drive chain the other day. There’s an Oxford Motorbike Group meetup tomorrow morning (weather permitting) at the H Cafe.

      Even last weekend’s post-run washdown and drive chain-cleaning was fun. Maybe not as fun as your caching, but the jobs put a smile on my face.
