Saturday 10th March 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.
The weather forecast suggests that the overnight rain will have headed north by the early morning, so we should stay dry, but please bring appropriate clothing and mudguards for the possibility of rain. Dave Nash will be leading the ride, which is a 60 mile route heading towards the Ridgeway. Full details of the route can be found on this Strava link. The wind is going to be strong and from the south, so we should enjoy a good following wind after Lambourn and a nice push through the valley back to Ashbury and home to Oxford!
If you are joining us for the first time, expect and overall average speed of somewhere around the 17mph-19mph mark. We don’t stop at a café on our rides and no one is dropped – we ensure everyone is looked after. Please make yourself known to the Dave on arrival and 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 bring clothing necessary for the likely conditions, enough fuel/water to sustain you and ensure your bike is road worthy!
