Thinking about joining?

Then come along on a Saturday at 9am and join us for club ride!

Whether you are an experienced road cyclist or have never ridden with a club or in a group before you are welcome to join us, though a decent level of fitness and endurance is required, along with a road bike in good working order. Our club rides are at the faster end of the scale: the medium ride is usually around 17+ mph (overall average) and the medium-fast a little higher, around the 18+mph mark. Both those figures are likely to rise during the warmer months by about 1-2 mph each.

As a rough guide to fitness, if you want to join our medium ride we’d expect you to be able to ride 50-60 miles at 15-16 mph on a solo ride. The medium-fast group can average anything between 17-20 mph depending on the time of year, the terrain and weather conditions, so you would need to be riding at an overall average speed of  around 17+ mph on your solo rides of 50-60 miles to be comfortable with the  pace.

There is further information on our club rides on the website and  we would be grateful if you also take a moment to read our page on ‘How We Ride’ –  which details our calls, shouts and expected etiquette on the road.

Drop us a line if you have any further queries, but in the meantime, we look forward to welcoming you on an OCC ride and, even better, let us know you are coming!

Spread the love
