Recurring Event (See all)
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.
Andrew Webb will be leading the ride, which will entail an anti-clockwise loop into the Cotswolds. Webby has billed this ride as The Three Fords Challenge, as we will be negotiating three water crossings along the way. No doubt they will be swollen by recent rain, so those with winter boots will have a distinct advantage!
The route is a little shy of 60 miles and expext an average speed of around 17-19mph, depending on conditions and group sizes. We don’t stop at a café on our rides (so bring enough fuel and water to sustain you) 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 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.
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. Please wear or stash away clothing necessary for the likely conditions and ensure your bike is road worthy!
