Ready to Join?

Join us for a decent on-road ride (with optional off-road section) starting and finishing in Oxford with a possibility of having a meal afterwards.

As many of us will be coming from Reading by train, we can arrange to go together from Protected content , bearing in mind that there may be restrictions of the number of bikes on the train.

Being a Level 4 road ride, this will take place mainly on country lanes with a few more major roads when necessary with a few challenging hills, but probably a total climb of no more than Protected content . The pace will be moderate, probably around Protected content average, but we will wait for everybody.

We will cycle for around 4 hours, with a stop off on the way for tea/coffee and cakes and cover around Protected content . This ride is suitable for people who are used to being in the saddle for a few hours and who have good fitness an good energy levels through regular cycling, gym or other physical activity.

For those who want to stay later, we can go for a meal in Oxford, at a venue to be decided.

What to bring:

- Hybrid bike or Road bike in good working condition - bike check before the ride.

- Helmet and appropriate clothing, including shoes, gloves, glasses and waterproofs

- Good quality front and rear lights, fully charged, as it will be dark when we return

- Water Bottle or Camelback as well as snacks (fruit, cereals, energy bars, electrolytes)

- Advisable: spare inner tube, puncture repair kit, mobile phone. Important to know:
