    Afternoon guys and gals, Sunday looks like being cool and dry with a firm breeze from the NE. I'm happy to lead a ride in that direction for a coffee stop at Emberton Country Park near Olney. Please click the attend button if you'd like to do this ride (48 miles). We can keep away from the traffic on the A508 by taking the birdwatching route around the lakes then up the cycle path to the Filgrave turn.

    I don't know if this format will make the route visible to you: http://www.strava.com/routes/28938981569­09231794
    In any event the gpx version below should get it into your device for navigation purposes.

    I went there today James. Masses of space inside and out. Lots to see. Good welcome. Drinks fine. Food limited - a few cakes but more cooked stuff.

    I'd definitely give it a go on a club ride some time. Service likely to be quicker than at G&D.

    I'm happy to lead a shorter (and more leisurely) variant, getting to Quainton after 20 miles, then following Paul's route back (38 miles in total). If you want to do this please click I'm attending. We can sort out who is doing which on the day.

    The GPX file that I have uploaded below can be downloaded into whatever route planning system you use. Sorry I don't know how to post it in an immediately visible format.

    It looks as if we´ll be 10 on the way out. Francine, Dick and Katie are taking a different route, probably to the G&D where we may join them after coffee, making 13 for part of the way back. So:

    1. We can ride as one on the way out, but in two subgroups to leave a gap for cars to cut in.
    2. We should stop, regroup and re-split at the junction after Grendon, with some going south to Ashendon and others taking the turn east, either to Waddesdon or to the G&D to join Francine and co.
    3. The numbers should be OK for seating at the 94.
    4. From there I will phone the others to see if the timing is good to RV at Quainton before continuing in two groups back to Buckingham/Winslow.

    Of course. Sounds as if you're riding in to the start.
