Saturday 26th January 2019
Firstly, a quick message to our members. If you wish to renew your OCC membership for 2019, please make the necessary payment via British Cycling by the end of January. Go to the OCC page on the BC website and click on the ‘Join our club’ tab beneath the photo. Many thanks in advance. Also, if you want to pre-order either a short-sleeve summer jersey or bib shorts, please drop Dave a message via Facebook or, alternatively, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
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 injection of caffeine from Le Bar cafe! 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 takes us north towards Hook Norton and our Club Sec, Mike Lowndes, will be leading the ride – you can check out the route details on STRAVA. Expect an overall average speed somewhere around the 18-mph mark, so ideally suited to cyclists with a decent level of fitness and endurance, though experience of riding in a group is not necessary – you’ll be looked after.
Non-members are welcome to come along , 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!
