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 takes us out to the Chiltern Hills and should provide a good test for the legs, with three good climbs and the final bump of Stanton St John to negotiate as we near home. Mike Lowndes will be leading the ride and full route details can be found on STRAVA, where you can also download a gpx/tcx file. Weather conditions are perfect – dry and warm, so expect an overall average speed of around 18-19mph.
If you are joining an OCC club run for the first time, then please make yourself known to Mike 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 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!
