Mid Oxon CRT was born out of the frustrations of youth. The Bishop brothers, Jeremy & Adam, along with other local club youngsters and a couple of not so young gentlemen started the club in 1987.
The formal and regimental way in which clubs were run did not fit the way the younger generation of that time were thinking. There were two options, change clubs existing ways of thinking and operating or start a new club, the latter seemed the easiest and fun way to go. The result was Mid Oxon CRT.
Since its inception Mid Oxon’s (CRT not now generally used) membership has shifted from mainly young to mainly old, its numbers never great but constant. It still maintains its informal, bordering on casual, approach to the sport.
Initially seen as rebels and sometimes shunned, Mid Oxon now has gained respectability through its members not necessarily through its racing prowess. Today its members are primarily cyclists who enjoy cycling and the camaraderie that brings be it training, racing, club runs or Etape Du Tours.
