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 route this week is described by Ride Leader Andrew Webb as ‘a belter of a ride’ and on a warm spring day there are few better places to cycle than the glorious Cotswolds. It’s lumpy in the middle with and a cumulative elevation of nearly 1000 metres, so expect an overall average speed of somewhere between 17.5mph-19mph. We don’t stop at a café on our rides and no one is dropped – we ensure everyone is looked after. The route can be viewed and downloaded from STRAVA.
If you are joining an OCC club run for the first time, then please make yourself known to 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. If you need some clarification on anything to do with the ride, like the tempo or duration, then drop us a line via our contact form.
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!
