As we emerge out of lockdown, we are beginning to introduce measures that will offer some semblance of normality and allow OCC members and non-members alike the opportunity to link up for a weekly club ride, whilst observing government guidelines on social distancing. Or ride will start from outside Bike Zone on St Michael’s Street at 9am, so arrive a little earlier if you want to grab a coffee.
This week we will be heading into the Cotswolds with a midway stop at Cafe de la Post in Chadlington for a coffee and a slice of their famous carrot cake! The route can now be viewed and downloaded from STRAVA. Non-members are very welcome to join us, especially those who have caught the road cycling bug during lockdown and would like to get a taste of riding with a club. We can pair you up with one of our members, so you have company and can learn a little more about OCC. Alternatively, rendezvous at the cafe – we should be arriving there from around 10.45am.
Our normal club rules apply, so please 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! Details on how we ride and likely tempo can be found here. NB: Bike Zone is currently closed on Saturdays.
