Recurring Event (See all)
Saturday 30th September
Two rides on offer today: the usual club ride and also a slower paced, shorter social ride.
Andrew Webb will be leading the OCC Club Ride this week and you can check out (and download) his 62 mile/100km loop to the Chiltern Hills on Strava. The OCC Club Ride starts promptly at 9am from outside Ubyk on the Abingdon Road, so please arrive in good time and if you have not ridden with OCC before, then please make yourself known to Webby when you roll up!
The Social Ride will be led by OCC Secretary, Brian Cooper, and will also start at 9am from Ubyk. After a quick chat and a short introduction to how we ride as a group, Brian will be taking the group out on a 45 mile loop to the edge of The Ridgeway, with a cafe stop in the village of Letcombe Regis at roughly the halfway point. The route can be viewed on the following Strava link: OCC Social Ride 30th September.
Our Social Rides are aimed at cyclists who want a more sedate pace and less mileage and those who are new to group cycling and/or riding with a club. They offer a great opportunity to meet some of the members of OCC and learn more about the club.
Both rides will head back to Oxford where we will hopefully rendezvous at home on the Abingdon Road, where OCC club rides finish each week – a chance to have a coffee, some more cake and some post-ride chit-chat!
If you are joining an OCC for the first time, then we ask that you have a look at our How We Ride page, which lists our calls, signals and how we like to ride as a bunch.
Please also note that the wearing of a helmet is mandatory and we ask anyone joining us to leave their ICE details on arrival and bring clothing necessary for the likely conditions, enough fuel/water to sustain you and ensure your bike is road worthy!
