Betjeman Ride 1* Add to Calendar

John Tranter - 07836 238350
Start Time:
2:00 pm
Start Location:
Betjeman Park, Wantage
Description:
In partnership with the Trustees of the Betjeman Park in Wantage, this is a gentle beginners ride from the Park to Uffington, where John Betjeman lived during the 1930's. The ride is particularly suitable to invite friends and family to try out.

We leave the Park and cut across to Grove past the famous Plane on a Stick, then Denchworth, Goosey and Baulking to the parish church in Uffington, where delicious tea and cakes await.

10 miles and no hills - seriously, anyone can do this! The average speed will be around 10-11 mph. If you are up for it, we will guide riders back to Grove/Wantage by the same route in reverse as well.

Oxfordshire Tri-vets and Annual Century (100 mile) Ride 3* Add to Calendar
Contact:
Steve Swanton - 07857 527990
Start Time:
8:00 am
Start Location:
Islip Village Hall
Description:
A chance to tackle an Imperial Century at a steady touring pace, with refreshment stops at 25, 50 and 75 or so miles.

This year's Oxfordshire Century Ride will form one of a series of Triennial Veterans' Rides (or Tri-vets) taking place across the country in June and July. The Tri-vets rides date back to the CTC's golden jubilee year of 1928 and are aimed at riders over the age of 50 (although the Oxfordshire ride will be open to all ages). Riders have up to 12 hours to complete a route and receive a certificate to commemorate their achievement. This year's ride is being run as a lighter version of the rides that we organised in 2016, following the format of our Annual Century, as a led ride with three refreshment stops. As in 2010, 2013 and 2016, the ride will start from Islip village hall but with a revised route that retains some of the best bits of the previous route with some variations to enable us to use different refreshments stops. Full details of route and refreshment stops to come.

All participants will need to register in advance as we are having to limit numbers to 36 (compared to 72 last time) on a first-come first-served basis. To do so please complete the google registration form available via a link here: http://cyclingukoxfordshire.org/rides-and-events/century2019/
