Saturday 9th June 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.
The ride this week is plucked from the OCC database of our favourite routes: it’s a cracking ride over the Ridgeway, taking in some quiet back roads before turning for home at Lambourn. Good weather is forecast and at just over 63 miles/101km and with 800 metres of climbing, expect an average speed around the 19mph mark. Dave Nash will be leading the ride this week and you can find more details of the route on STRAVA.
Non-members are more than welcome to join us, but if you are joining an OCC club run for the first time, then please make yourself known to Dave on arrival and 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!
