A featured ride

Coffee, cakes and chat? The chat started unsurprisingly with a discussion of why one of our riders had been unable to adjust headset bearings after fitting a new stem. Plenty of expertise there. What was not quite so predictable (and much less easy to solve) was the discussion on The Nature of Belief. (Adaptive evolution?) Which led to “Why are we here?” And because one thing leads to another, someone couldn’t resist: Surely, it depends what you mean by “here”. At which point we reverted to safer ground discussing the forecast downpours or perhaps just pondered a while over our americanos. Well, this is Oxford after all! Full details »

Our cycling club is based in Oxford and we run regular Sunday rides, usually leaving at 9:30am from Broad Street. One of our experienced ride leaders takes us into the country at an average pace of around 20 kph – which means riding at 22-24 kph on the flat. We stop for coffee, when riders choose either to return to Oxford or to continue on to lunch. We welcome new riders to join our friendly group, lovers of the 3 Cs: coffee, cakes and chat.
