Oxfordshire Road Race League, Arncott

Duncan Clark, Andy Moon, Jon Jones and David Ivory took part in the opening road race of the Oxfordshire Road Race League on the Arncott circuit near Bicester hosted by Bicester Millennium. The weather was perfect, dry warm with sunny intervals, there was a little breeze but nothing to trouble the bunch. The highlight of the circuit was Panshill, a short steep, Belgium Classics type middle ring climb which would have to tackled seven times, with a Prime on the fourth ascent. Of course with every up comes a down, with a 40mph plus descent of the B4011.

Aldermaston H10/1 TT Tuesday 24 May 2016

After a brief intermission, we're back!

It was a sunny evening but a chilly NE breeze made the return leg hard work in places. Dan Raptor Bigham's ride stands apart but there were many good rides through the field. Nice to see former member and now elite road-racer Joe Harris turning out for a swift ride on his road bike.

Chiltern 100 Gran and Medio, Mash Up, and Little Lumpy sportives

Several sportives took place on he weekend of 15th May 2016.

Here are the reports from our riders at these events:

Chiltern 100 sportives

Paul Gray rode the Gran Fondo
“On Sunday I did the Chiltern Hundred Sportive, having done this a few times now I know what to expect with it’s challenging route of going up or down nearly all the peaks of the Chilterns, which strangely seems to suit me well.
