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 injection of caffeine from Le Bar cafe! The ride will end at Home on the Abingdon Road, where we can enjoy a coffee, cake and post-ride chatter.
This week Mike L takes us north and east around Bicester for a flat ‘ish’ route to work on combating the mince pie effect. The route is downloadable from Strava. The weather looks cloudy, dry and mild for this time of year, but don’t trust the meteorologists – bring a rain shell just in case.
Our winter club rides are usually around 60 miles in length and depending on size of group, route and weather conditions usually have an overall average speed somewhere around the 17-18 mph mark, so ideally suited to cyclists with a good level of fitness and endurance, though experience of riding in a group is not necessary – you’ll be looked after. Full ride details, including a link to the route on Strava, will be posted here no later than Friday evening.
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!
