This a historic boat race between Oxford and Cambridge Universities has taken place between Putney Bridge and Chiswick Bridge since 1845 only stopping during the 1st and 2nd World Wars.
The race time varies each year according to the tide, we run a bike tour accordingly, taking in the sights along this lesser know part of Londons River Thames, we’ll enjoy hot drinks whilst we watch the race! Depending on times we may be able to arrange the route involving our ale tasting of great Fullers Beers.
This ride is our regular half day Ale Tasting Bike Ride route.
