Club Runs


IMPORTANT: COVID-19 (updated 20th JULY 2021)

Under no circumstances should you attend, deliver or take part in cycling activities or events if you have symptoms of Covid-19 or have been asked to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace. This remains the law, regardless of your vaccination status.
DPCC Sunday group rides following move to Step 4 of Government Roadmap out of lockdown on 19th July 2021

Although HM Government have removed all Covid-19 legal restrictions on social contact (group size and social distancing, etc.) DPCC’s Sunday rides programme will follow the advice of British Cycling and we recommend that participants continue to:

  • regularly assess themselves for symptoms of Covid-19. If you develop Covid-19 symptoms, self-isolate immediately and get a PCR test, even if your symptoms are mild
  • continue to wear face coverings when in crowded or enclosed areas
  • maintain good hand hygiene, covering mouths/noses when coughing or sneezing, and remember to bring your own hand sanitiser or wipes on rides
  • people wishing to participate in Sunday rides MUST continue to register IN ADVANCE by 9pm on the Friday evening prior to the ride using the following Google Form: https://forms.gle/vXhVKkFciNZBbo6d9
  • PLEASE ensure you have read and understood the additional DPCC Covid19 rules here: http://www.didcotphoenix.co.uk/dpcc-club-runs/

*we will review this restriction regularly as we gain experience organising group rides under this new format, and as HM Government guidance changes


DPCC run regular Sunday Club Runs throughout the year in all but the most extreme weather.
Club runs are a great way to start to learn group riding skills, extend your endurance and offer a chance to chat about all things cycling.
Club runs are typically three to four hours and in that time can cover 50-60 miles and include a cafe stop for refuelling (cake!).
The club run schedule and routes are below and rides leave Boundary Park Sports Pavilion (OX11 6EY) at 9 am (BST) in Spring/Summer and 9.30 am (GMT) in autumn/winter.
Club runs are open to all with and newcomers are encouraged to join the club after five rides.
