Never let the British weather put you off!

The abiding memory of Ride and Stride Saturday 2016 is RAIN and lots of it! An especially big thank you was sent to all those that braved the elements and to those who welcomed soggy and bedraggled visitors to their churches. The warm welcome, cups of hot drinks and a chance to be out of the rain for a few moments was greatly appreciated.  As were the pubs where some sheltered for lunch with hot air dryers in the loos – one rider said he had spent some considerable time drying as much of him as he could that way!

The second Saturday in September usually fairs well for the weather, 2012 had a very hot Ride and Stride day. The previous significantly wet Ride and Stride day in Oxfordshire was 2005 when someone reported being ankle deep in a raging torrent! Let us hope that Saturday 9th September 2017 will be a beautifully sunny day that is not too hot.

This year the Tour of Britain cycling race will be passing through the northern part of Oxfordshire on the same day as the Ride and Stride. Further details about how this will affect Oxfordshire’s Ride and Stride will be posted on OHCT’s website once more information is known.

Ride and Stride is predominantly an event for cyclists, walkers and horse riders, but OHCT is happy to accept money raised in other ways too.

Whatever role you play in Ride and Stride – all are equally valuable and we would love you to take part.
