Saturday 9th March 2019
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 want to grab a coffee. The ride will end at Home on the Abingdon Road, where we will inevitably enjoy a beer and plenty of post-ride chatter!
Blustery from the west this Saturday, so a relatively benign route out towards Witney and Burford, before flitting through the quintessential Cotswold villages of Eastleach Turville and Southrop and picking up a strong following wind to push us home. Expect an overall average speed somewhere around the 18 mph mark, so ideally suited to cyclists with a good level of fitness and endurance. Dave Nash will be leading the ride this week and full route details are now available on STRAVA.
Non-members are welcome to come along – experience of riding in a group is not necessary and our membes will ensure you are looked after. 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!
