Another ride with the V-CC on Saturday.
It was part two of our war memorials ride; visiting village war memorials in South Oxfordshire.
It was 0° Celsius (freezing) when I set off in the morning, but at least it wasn't raining (yet).
Once again riding "fixed" on 'Inconnu' my French road bike.....
Almost every village has a little memorial, commemorating those who gave their lives in both world wars and later conflicts.
Some are very poignant and often bear the names of many members obviously of the same family.
Here, the other guys are pictured in the small village of Waterstock. Three people are remembered on this memorial.....
The bikes pictured are (left to right 1970's 'Holdsworth', 1938 'Imperial Petrel', 1936 ' New Hudson' and ' Inconnu' (pre WW1).
I cycled for a round trip of 46 miles and was soaked through by the time I returned home; unfortunately the rain started just after our lunch stop, but at least the temperature had reached a heady 6°!
