Classic itinerary day-by-day
1. Day one
Circular ride from Thame
Arrive at Thame & Haddenham Parkway station by 10.30am on Saturday morning and transfer to your hotel, The Spread Eagle. Here your bikes will be waiting for you along with the route directions for a circular cycle ride through the lovely Oxfordshire countryside. This is fantastic gentle cycling in flat territory which for a significant section runs along a traffic-free, disused railway line.
Saturday evening is left free for the group to celebrate and enjoy the great food and pubs on offer in Thame.
20 miles (32 km)
2. Day two
Chocolate making in Thame
On Sunday morning there is the option of a short bike ride or it can be left free for the party to explore Thame, or simply relax/recover from the night before!
Enjoy a leisurely lunch in Thame and then in the afternoon the group will head over to Rumsey’s for the 1.5 hour chocolate making lesson. This is a chance to see a master chocolate chef at work, and then have a go yourself. You'll have made your own figurine by the end of the session. Providing it's edible (!), the idea is to take it away with you to enjoy.
You are then free to return home on Sunday evening from Thame at your leisure.
