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 heatwave we have enjoyed this week looks set to continue over the weekend, so slap on some sun cream for an OCC classic club ride that takes us deep into the Cotswold Hills, within touching distance of Bourton-on-the-Water, but turning for home before we risk being engulfed by the tourist hordes! It should be a great morning, with regular Ride Leader, Paul Antony, at the helm. Full route details are now available on STRAVA.
Depending on the size of group, expect an overall average speed somewhere between 18 and 20mph. Paul has also devised a shorter route for those who may want to shave off some mileage and elevation.
If you are joining an OCC club run for the first time, then please make yourself known to Paul 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. We don’t stop at a café on our rides, so please bring enough fuel and water to sustain you!
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!
