Oxford University Cycling Club (OUCC) is a lively cycling club for students and associated members of the University of Oxford. The club was originally founded in 1873 and is proud to be one of the oldest cycling clubs in the world. It is even suggested that we may be the oldest student cycling club in the world, but this is difficult to verify. The club has a strong tradition centered on the annual Varsity match, which is contested in both road and off-road competitions. The club currently has over 100 members who regularly take part in road racing, time-trialing and mountain biking.
The MTB group organise rides a few times a week to places close to Oxford such as Shotover country park and Boars hill. Trips to the closest trail centers are organised during the week in order the gain technical skills. The club take part in winter events such as the Merida Brass Monkeys and the Gorrick Spring series.
The road group organizes Saturday rides, leaving at 10 am from Trinity gate on Broad street. There are social, development and squad rides, all at different pace to suit everyone. Any riders looking to prepare for competition are welcome to join the road squad and follow our training plan (under the guidance of our professional coach). Contact the Road Captain for more information.
