One of our first ever #teamroadcc rideouts took place at the Decathlon store in Oxford and we've been invited back - tech ed Dave Arthur obviously made a good first impression!
The staff from the French sports superstore chain proved how good an event they can put on at both Oxford and then their Sheffield store back at the end of October with a stunning route and great hospitality, although we played our part too - after all, who was it that brought all that free schwagaway eh?
This time round we'll have a couple of routes on offer being run at different paces to keep things as sociable as possible. They're be a coffee stop too so make sure you bring some change for tea and cake.
We normally roll out about 9am after a quick coffee or three and get back around three hours later for more coffee, nibbles and our free giveaway from the schwag box.
The whole emphasis is on a club riding mentality so it is just really a sociable morning out on the bike with fellow road.cc readers - I'll be there too leading one of the rides.
We'll be back with full details soon regarding exact routes and things but if you fancy getting your name down then register here, it's free and we've still got a few places left.
Hopefully we'll see you there - #teamroadcc
With 20 years of road cycling and over 150,000 miles in his legs it's safe to say Stu is happiest when on the bike whatever the weather. Since writing his first review for road.cc back in 2009 he has also had a career in engineering including 3D-CAD design and product development, so has a real passion for all of the latest technology coming through in the industry but is also a sucker for a classic steel frame, skinny tyres, rim brakes and a damn good paintjob.
His fascination with gravel bikes is getting out of control too!
