Saturday 29th June 2019
It’s going to be a scorcher, so whatever your plans are for this Saturday, be sure to slap on some sunscreen and come loaded with a couple of full bidons!
A few club members are heading out at dawn tomorrow for a big loop out west, but our weekly club ride will be starting as usual at 9am from outside Bike Zone on St Michael’s Street in the historic centre of Oxford. The ride will end at Home on the Abingdon Road, where we can enjoy a coffee, cake and post-ride chatter.
Depending on numbers, there will be a medium and medium-fast ride on offer, but ride leader, Mark Howard, will make the call when he has a clear idea on numbers and ability. Full details of the route are now available on STRAVA. If one group goes out, expect an overall average speed somewhere around the 18+mph mark, so ideally suited to cyclists with a good level of fitness and endurance. Experience of riding in a group is not necessary – you’ll be looked after.
Non-members are welcome to come along, but if you have not ridden with OCC before, 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!
