Mr Measor, 56, was killed when his bike was involved in a collision with a blue Nissan Micra on Watlington Road near Garsington in February.
Johnson Nwanekezi, 40, has this week been charged with causing death by careless driving following the collision on Monday, February 17.
Nwanekezi, of Beauvoir Road in Reading, was originally arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving but he was charged with the lesser crime when he answered police bail on Tuesday.
He has now been released on bail to appear at Oxford Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, June 24.
BMW factory worker Mr Measor was a keen football player and manager. He spent 15 years at Rover Cowley FC in the Oxfordshire Senior League.

Mr Measor was married to Jacky and had two children, NHS worker Darren and Oxford City Council employee Vicki.
He cycled on the B480 every day to his job at the Mini plant in Cowley where he had worked for 32 years as a paint sprayer and then factory worker.
