Then come along on a Saturday at 9am and join us for club ride!
If you are an experienced road cyclist or used to riding in a group then you are welcome to join us for one of our medium or medium-fast club rides, so long as you have the right gear and a road bike in good working order. As a guide to fitness, we’d expect you to be able to ride 50-60 miles at 16 mph solo for the medium group. The medium-fast group can average anything between 17-20 mph depending on the time of year, the terrain and weather conditions.
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.
If you are new to club cycling then we hold Social /New Rider rides every few weeks – check the calendar for the next one. As a guide to fitness, we’d expect you to be able to ride for 40 miles at around 15mph average (solo) for a Social ride. If you are new to road cycling or lack experience of riding in a bunch, then we have also compiled some useful tips on how to ride in a group.
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!
