Route Description: 

For road riding enthusiasts this ride provides a good opportunity to cover some distance on well paved, quiet country roads, touring across the northern part of Oxford County. Starting from the town of Ingersoll, 31st Line is a delightful 20 km run past scenic farms and agricultural lands. Enjoy more of the same on this relatively flat route all the way into Tavistock, a perfect half way rest stop for home cooking at Quehl’s Restaurant. Sky-high views abound riding south east along 16th line and onto Oxford Road 33 where vehicles are expecting to see cyclists with Share the Road signs along the way. Pedal into Woodstock for a look around. Before the last 13 km either sprint or cruise along Beachville Road, into Ingersoll and the end of the ride.
