It was a very cold day on Saturday as we sat at Bob's house drinking tea and talking bollocks, nothing unusual there it must be said but while twittering away we eventually decided to head south into the Cotswolds and hopefully end up at Fox’s Diner for a warming breakfast.

Well that was the plan and as we all know things never go to plan, so after jumping onto the bikes we headed down the A429 and passed our usual breakfast stop near Wellesbourne and carried on through the popular market town of Moreton-in-Marsh where we turned onto the very frosty and cold A44 until we came into the infamous town of Chipping Norton.

Once we arrived in Chipping Norton we decided to stop and try to find somewhere to get a hot drink and get warm as even the local brass monkey’s were started to get worried.

After finding a local book shop that also sold coffee (the cakes look very nice as well but we decided to wait until we got to Fox's Diner) and had warmed up we decided to head in a more direct route to Fox’s Diner due to the cold.

So on with the GPS and through the centre of Oxford we went until we arrived at Fox’s Diner only to find it closed – crap

The lucky thing about Fox’s Diner is that next door the bike accessories shop MPS Express were open so in we popped to have a mooch about.

Due to time getting on a bit and the fact we were all starving (knew I should have had some cake in Chipping Norton) we decided to head to the nearest Little Chef, unfortunately this meant a trip around the Oxford ring road that just happened to be almost full of stationary traffic but nothing gets in the way of Bob and his Full English so 15 minutes later the bikes were parked in the Little Chef and we were in a nice warm restaurant ordering coffee and Olympic Breakfast (Cheers Chinny)

We decided that is was in fact way too cold, even for us so we took the decision the jump onto the A34 and then the M40 and get home nice and quick rather than take the long way home.
