Saturday 7th July 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 a coffee, cake and post-ride chatter.
The route this week is a relatively benign 68 mile loop that takes in some quiet back roads in the Thames Valley and the western fringes of the Ridgeway. Expect an overall average speed somewhere around the 19mph mark. Full details are now available on STRAVA. It’s going to be hot, so ensure you have plenty of water – two bidons advisable – and have slapped on some sun cream!
A few things to be aware of if you are joining OCC for the first time. Firstly, we don’t stop at a café on our rides, so please bring enough fuel and water to sustain you. On arrival, please make yourself known to this week’s ride leader, Dave Nash, 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.
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!
