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.
This route this week is a slightly extended version of a midweek favourite, which takes us into the heart of the Cotswolds and back along some quiet roads, where we should pick up a strong following wind all the home. Dave Nash will be leading and full details are now available on STRAVA. Expect an overall average speed somewhere around the 18mph 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.
Non-members are welcome to come along – please make yourself known to Dave 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!
