Saturday 17th 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.
Due to overnight temperatures again expected to dip below freezing, please keep an eye on our Facebook Page (or Facebook Group) on Saturday morning in case Ride Leader, Andrew Webb, feels it necessary to delay the start time. It’s going to be cold, with an easterly wind, so make sure you are suitably dressed to combat the chill factor!
The route can be viewed on Strava. It’s a 60 mile loop into the Cotwolds, with a flatter return home, so expect an 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.
If you are joining an OCC club run for the first time, then please make yourself known Webby 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!
