Saturday 26th May 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 some post-ride chatter and refreshments . . . the Cotswold IPA is proving increasingly popular this summer!
The ride this Saturday will take us into the heart of the Cotswold Hills, but the first half of the route is a relatively flat spin out towards Burford, before the first real hills are encountered. Full details of the route are now available on STRAVA, so please download the route if you have a computer. There is a fair chance of some sporadic rain tomorrow, but it will be very warm, so expect an overall average speed somewhere around the 18-19mph mark.
Dave Nash will be leading the ride and Johnny Morrison will be taking a short-cut back to home for those who want a slightly less challenging pace and a little less mileage.
If you are joining an OCC club run for the first time, then please make yourself known to Dave or Johnny 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!
