Saturday 3rd August 2019
The OCC club ride starts at 9am from outside Bike Zone 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 coffee! The ride will end at Home on the Abingdon Road, where we can enjoy a cold beer, refreshments and post-ride chatter.
This week we will be heading SW over the Ridgeway and the M4 to the village of Aldbourne, before turning for home and back via some stunning roads and the direct route back from Shrivenham. Full details are now available on STRAVA. It should be dry, it should be warm, so expect an overall average speed somewhere around the 18+mph mark for our medium ride and 19+ mph for our medium-fast group, so ideally suited to cyclists with a good level of fitness and endurance. Experience of riding in a group is not necessary – you’ll be looked after.
Non-members are welcome to come along – please introduce yourself to the ride leaders on arrival – 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!
