Saturday 1st September 2018
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.
Regular ride leader, Andrew Webb, fresh back from conquering Mont Ventoux, will be leading the club ride into the Chilterns this weekend and it’s a bit of a beast itself, with over 1000 metres of climbing packed into 70 miles/112km. The weather forecast is looking perfect, so expect an overall average speed somewhere around the 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. Full route details are now available to view and download from STRAVA.
Non-members are welcome to join us and please make yourself known to Webby on arrival. 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!
