Saturday 23rd March 2019
The OCC club rides start 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 weekend the route takes us northwards before looping back towards Brill – a relatively benign ride and we should benefit from a following wind in the second half. Two groups to choose from this week: firstly a medium pace ride led by Will Davies and a medium-fast led by Andrew Webb. Expect an overall average speed somewhere around the 15-16mph mark for the medium and 18 mph for the medium-fast group, so ideally suited to cyclists with a good level of fitness and endurance. The route can be downloaded from STRAVA.
Non-members are welcome to come along – please make yourself known to Will or Webby on arrival – and 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. Experience of riding in a group is not essential – our ride leaders and members will ensure you are looked after. 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!
