Bicester Social Cycling
Bicester Social Cycling is affiliated to Cycling UK
Welcome! Monica Mehers set up this group to encourage others out on social cycle rides that are open to all abilities and non-competitive.
By joining the cycle rides (with a serviceable cycle), we hope you'll make new friends and maybe get other rides going yourselves. We generally stop somewhere for cake and coffee.
From Dec 2018, our regular cycle rides now leave from outside The Saxon, 59-61 Sheep Street, Bicester OX26 9JW Saturdays departing 09:30hrs and Sundays sometimes a little earlier. E-Mails and Pinned posts on our Facebook Page let members know the next organized cycle ride details, usually with the route.
All regular rides are planned on quieter roads on 1st Sun and 3rd Sat of each month throughout the year (high winds/frost/ice/snow permitting). Sat rides are planned at 10-12mph over about 30-40mls whereas Sunday rides are more leisurely and shorter - planning to return to start by 12:30hrs. We also aim to run some additional very gentle rides in warmer conditions for the less confident and some 'ladies only' rides which may be run in conjunction with British Cycling's Breeze Rides.
By the time you’ve cycled with us on regular rides three times, we need a contribution of £5 annually towards our group affiliation fee. Our regular riders are also expected to maintain their own third party liability insurance. As a member of an Affiliated Group, you may choose to become an Individual Affiliated Cycling UK member for an Adult reduced rate of only £24 per year, which would provide you with Third Party Insurance cover and the ability to view the Group Copy of Cycling UK Magazine. Please ask Monica/Trevor for our affiliate number.
If you'd like cycling help, more information on the group, advice or guidance, please contact us initially by completing the ‘Contact person by email’ link if we don't know the answer we can point you in the right direction.
