Recurring Event (See all)
Saturday 24th February 2018
Due to an expected hard overnight frost the OCC club ride will be starting at the slightly later time of 10am from outside the Society Café on St Michael’s Street, bang in the middle of 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.
Mike Lowndes will be leading the ride, which will entail a 60 mile loop that heads NW of Oxford, picking up the easterly winds forecast as we head for home. As the weather is dry and bright, expect an average speed between 17mph-19mph. The full route, including a gpx/tcx file for download, can be found on the following Strava link: NorthEast 60
If you are joining an OCC club run for the first time, then please make yourself known to Mike 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 and no one is dropped – we ensure everyone is looked after.
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!
