Im thinking of organising an Oxford Alleycat type event in the new year, would anyone be interested?
Also, keen for social rides starting from Oxford into the chilterns/cotswolds but not keen for all the cycling club kit, 'advice' and rules. If anyone else is looking for something similar then I would be interested to hear from you.
There’s a fair few people riding fixed in oxford (myself included) I’m always up for more bike related social stuff, you should pop into common ground on little Clarendon st, there’s always a few groups of riders in there and they’re always up for putting bike nights on! Anyway, hit me up if you ever have any ideas - maybe we could brainstorm some stuff
Thanks for the reply.
Im not so fussed abut what type of bike people ride to be honest, just keen for some coffee rides that arent on my own anymore. I sold my single speeds recently as needed the space so only got a couple geared bikes at the moment.
Is there any time that is best for meeting people for a ride at common ground?
The old Oxford Cycle Workshop alleycats used to be fun, very much like a casual treasure hunt rather than a flat out courier race, and as a result that attracted a wide range of people. Would be good to see something happening and get pootling around Oxford again.
Do the Broken Spoke organise any events like this?
Sadly I haven't actually ridden for a few years after a back injury so I'd have no chance of even reaching the Chilterns or Cotswolds. I'd be interested in alleycats or very casual rides though as I'd like to get back on a bike.
