About Us


Oxford’s Competitive Road Cycling Club

We focus on:

  • living the Zappi culture

  • reaching our potential via group rides and competition

  • developing our young cyclists towards racing

  • supporting the Zappi Race Teams

If this appeals to you

We offer a unique experience: as a member of Zappi’s CC you will become part of a unique project to support our club’s racing teams that aim to compete at the highest level, under the guidance of former Giro d’Italia green jersey holder, Flavio Zappi. Our club is all about racing with style.

This extends from Flavio’s personal philosophy right through its adult members to our youngest members – helping take them from the playground to the podium whilst developing a lifelong love of cycling in a fun environment. Zappi’s have a simple approach – supporting members to get on their bike and ride. Either competitively or through club rides alongside those aiming to race.

Our famiglia approach means we learn from each other and ride for the future.

Forza Zappi!

We were BBC 2014 Sport Club Of The Year in Oxfordshire:

“They offer an genuine inclusive club experience and take their riders from the playground to the podium at the highest level possible in cycling. They took part in various tours and competitions on a regional, national and international level. As a consequence Dan Pearson was selected to ride for Team GB in the 2014 Tour of Britain.

“….Apart from being proactive and very successful in engaging youth and the community, they are committed to raising standards for all from disabled cycling, women, minority groups, youth, beginners and at the highest level possible. As a result they have reached the British Cycling’s Go-Ride Clubmark Accreditation that ensures equal opportunities.”
