Faringdon in Oxfordshire is very fortunate to be at the centre of the flower-shaped cycling hub that links the beautiful Cotswolds with the Thames Valley with the Vale of the White Horse with the North Wessex Downs with wonderful National Trust villages and views that take your breath away.
We petal our way through the countryside, favouring low-traffic and even no-traffic routes. Apart from the odd friendly horse perhaps.
On Saturdays (all year, whatever the weather - at the moment riding in "bubbles-of-six" setting off at 8.30, 8.45, and 9.00) rides start from Faringdon’s Market Place (links below show examples) :
On Sundays May to October we normally also have the very family-friendly Sunday Whimcycles, setting off at 11am from Faringdon’s Market Place.
Throughout the year, there are ad hoc Farcycles excursions often involving pubs, or picnics, or twin towns in France,
And Farcyclists also proudly wear their pink pigeon strip at cycling events as far flung as Corsica and South Africa. Further evidence to be found in the rogues gallery.
