Oxford Ramble <28/01/2024>

A gentle introduction to the joy of gravel grinders with a few stops to relax, rejuvenate and rest at.

The ride starts and finishes at 10am in Oxford and we will travel to the Waimakariri River and back.

This is a great introduction to gravel riding, it is a rolling 52ks, one proper climb with a bunch of gravel sections, a bit of highway and a number of quiet rural roads.

This will be a semi-supported, no drop, guided ride with a café stop at the beginning and end. We have an awesome picnic lunch spot, but you have to bring it along with you!
Perfect for the person who hasn’t ridden on gravel before and wants to in a no pressure group. Or just a social play with friends new and old. It’s not a race!
Road bike, adventure bikes, fat bikes, mountain bikes, e-bikes and everything in between welcome.
