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 ride this week will be led by Mike Lowndes, back home after a lengthy sojourn in the southern hemisphere. The route heads out via Marston and northeast into the Cotwolds. Expect an overall average speed somewhere around the 19mph 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. Check out and download the route on STRAVA.
Non-members are welcome to come along, but if you have not ridden with OCC before, please let yourself know 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, 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!
