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.
