A featured ride

Sun 6 November, 2022

Twelve riders set off from Broad Street in our waterproofs but the rain had stopped by the time we reached the top of Cumnor Hill, so we stopped for a clothing adjustment. We picked up two additional riders before coffee at Bampton Garden Centre. As we tucked into our scones and cakes we heard the rain starting to pelt down on the roof. Several riders left to return back to Oxford, but 7 intrepid souls decided to brave the weather and continue on a beautiful loop round to Aston. The rain was not too bad as we set off but after a few minutes, the rain became a deluge. Fortunately, Jackie then had a puncture in her new performance tyre. We huddled under a tree whilst Jackie worked on her wheel. By the time we set off again, the rain had stopped and as we continued on small, quiet back lanes the sun started to make its way through the clouds. We arrived at Aston Pottery a little after the time I had told them but our table for 10 awaited us. I apologised for our reduced numbers but they did not seem to mind. After a delicious lunch, we all set off on our different journeys home and made it back to Oxford before it was dark. Full details »

    It’s our annual ride to White Horse Hill for mince pies and mulled wine. A long stretch to coffee with a climb over Boars Hill and a hard climb to the top of White Horse Hill before mulled wine and mince pies. Like many local clubs, we will join Cycling UK Wantage’s annual festive ride in support of the Whiz-Kidz charity. Make it more of an event by adding Antlers and /or tinsel to you or your bike.

About us

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.
