Saturday 19th May 2018
The OCC club ride starts at 9am from outside the Society Café on St Michael’s Street in the historic centre of Oxford, so please arrive in good time for a prompt start and a little earlier if you are in need of a pre-ride injection of caffeine! The ride will end at Home on the Abingdon Road, where we can enjoy a coffee, cake and post-ride chatter.
Following last weekend’s challenging ride in the Welsh borders, we will be returning to some familiar roads this Saturday, but it’s a punchy 67 miles/108km route into the Chilterns, taking in numerous climbs amounting to over 1000 metres of ascent. Full details of the route can be found on the following STRAVA link. Andrew Webb will be leading the ride, so if you have not joined us before, please make yourself known to him on arrival.
Conditions on Saturday should be dry and sunny, so expect an overall average speed somewhere in the region of 18-19mph. We don’t stop at a café on our rides, so please bring enough fuel and water to sustain you!
If you are joining an OCC club run for the first time, we ask that you have a look at our How We Ride page in advance, which lists our calls, signals and how we like to ride as a bunch.
Please also note that the wearing of a helmet is mandatory and we ask anyone joining us for the first time to provide their ICE details and wear/bring clothing necessary for the likely conditions, inner tubes and please ensure your bike is road worthy!
