Watlington. Oxfordshire (Birthday Meet) Aug 18

ALC Birthday Meet Aug 2nd-6th

As this meet is to celebrate our club “Birthday”  it was decided to move this years meet back to the 1st weekend in August. This brings it back inline with our history when in August 1901 six mobile cycle campers spent a weekend in tents in an orchard at Wantage. They were some of the newly formed Association of Cycle Campers (ACC) started by Thomas Hiram Holding. The ACC grew, attracting pedestrian campers and those traveling by car. It amalgamated with other groups and eventually became the Camping Club of Great Britain and Ireland.

Join us for our most attended meet in the calendar.

Whitemark farm is a great site on the edge of the Chilterns, great base for visiting Oxford and surrounding villages. The site is right next to the Ridgeway long distance path and there is some great walking to be had in the area.

If cycling is your thing you have a choice of heading into the hills and lanes of the Chilterns of towards the flatter lands towards Oxfordshire.
