* 07:50 ride from Didcot Parkway connects with local train from Oxford (07:21). Check with Great Western Trains for details.
Please support the group rides it is a good time to meet cyclists from the same town and swap tips, route information etc.
If you are planning to cycle in but not with one of the group rides, please call in at the Harwell Pavilion and say hello and get a breakfast.
