Saturday 22nd February 2020
The OCC club ride starts at 9am from outside Bike Zone 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 coffee! The ride will end at Home on the Abingdon Road.
This week we will be dodging flood waters wherever possible, but there’s no escaping the strong winds, but the route will ensure it’s on our back on the way home! Expect an overall average speed somewhere around the 18+mph mark, so ideally suited to cyclists with a good level of winter fitness and endurance. Experience of riding in a group is not necessary – you’ll be looked after by this week’s ride leader, Andrew Webb, and our members.
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!
