A featured ride

Sun 24 October, 2021

This was our last British Summer Time ride this year. The weather was mild, but the summer meadow in Broad St had been cleared away, leaving a few small planters by the café seating, and lots of curvy flowers painted on the road. We made it to coffee at Waterperry via the usual Horspath route where the weather was warm enough to sit outside. After coffee we made our way around the northeast edge of Otmoor with a helpful tail wind to lunch at Bicester Avenue, our fist visit here as a lunch venue. Food was good and it is a busy enough place you don’t need to prebook. We then had to negotiate our way through the south side of Bicester with its numerous long winded cycle crossings and undersized traffic islands (unnavigable on a tandem, and only just on a solo bike) before escaping Bicester towards Bucknell. After that is was a run down to Kidlington and back into Oxford. 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. The map is an embedded link from Ride with GPS. You can zoom in to see the route in as much detail as…

    Sunday ride to Waterperry and Wheatley

    This route was last done in the winter of 2018 when we encountered the flood at Cuddesdon that had a floating car in it. Hoping that won’t be the case this year. Lunch is at the Motorway services which means it should be quick with plenty of choice even at this busy time of year.

    Annual Tweed Ride

    0 photos

    Bring out your oldest bike and start visiting your tailor (or local charity shop) and don some tweed or similar (not compulsory – just come anyway!) It will be a short ride (max 10 miles) around the landmarks of Oxford for our own amusement and the bemusement of locals and tourists alike. The route will be decided on the day and will be dependent on weather and conditions (Tweed is a marvelous rain repellent) but we will end up in a hostelry for mulled wine, hot toddies or just a warm fire.
