The OCC club ride starts at 9am from the AMT coffee kiosk on the corner of Ship Street and Cornmarket 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 our regular cafe, Home on the Abingdon Road, where we can enjoy a coffee, cake and post-ride chatter.
Our club ride this week will be led by Andrew Webb and, as the route title suggests, will make the most of the strong southerly winds that are forecast. You can check out and download the route on STRAVA. Expect an overall average speed somewhere around the 18-19 mph mark, so ideally suited to cyclists with a good level of fitness and endurance, though experience of riding in a group is not necessary – you’ll be looked after.
The weather forecast is looking somewhat bizarre – summer temperatures, autumnal winds and the chance we may encounter some rain thanks to Storm Callum, so come prepared for an eclectic mix of conditions!
Non-members are welcome to come along, but if you have not ridden with OCC before, 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!
