About our club
Founded in 2016, Oxford Cycling Club, aka OCC, is a friendly and welcoming new cycling club for Oxford.
Club rides are held every Saturday morning and leave from outside the Society Cafe on St Michael's Street in the historic centre of Oxford. Our club rides are lively and challenging, but always rooted in disciplined riding and we always ensure that everyone is well looked after, especially those joining us for the first time. We have several experienced ride leaders and each week groups head out to the Cotswolds, the Chiltern Hills or the Ridgeway. The average speed can vary according to weather conditions and ability, but expect an overall average of around 17mph -19mph for a ride of 60 miles. Please contact us directly if you want any further information of ride length and tempo.
We also run regular 'social' rides, especially in the warmer months, which are primarily aimed at cyclists with little or no experience of riding in a group or with a club. These rides are suitable for those who want to ride at a slightly more sedate pace and for less miles than our club rides. Details of social rides are posted on our website and Facebook page a few weeks in advance.
In addition to our weekly club ride, members organise mid-week rides and the club also organises trips away to parts of the country within relatively easy reach of Oxford. We also hold social events throughout the year, so check out our website and Facebook page for any upcoming events or rides.
But it’s not all about the bike. OCC has teamed up with Sobell House Hospice and a proportion of all funds raised by OCC will be heading in the direction of this admirable Oxfordshire charity. In 2017 we raised £1000 through kit sales, memberships fees and social events.
So if you want to know how Oxford's newest cycling club can enhance and enliven your road cycling experience, then please join us for a ride or simply get in touch or visit our website, where you will find regular updates on our club rides, events and a lot more!
PLEASE NOTE; We require members to hold British Cycling membership in either Ride, Race Silver or Race Gold categories so that we can be sure everyone has 3rd party liability cycle insurance. We do this out of a desire to be a responsible club.
