MID-PACE LONG RIDE THIS SUNDAY
I'll be leading a c.120km ride to Great Dunmow and back this Sunday, taking in some of the Essex lanes, with a coffee stop about half way. There'll be a few hills early on, but nothing too taxing. Any real challenge would be if the wind gets up on the way back - this is where group riding skills come to the fore
We will aim for an AVERAGE across the ride of 26-27kph - this is faster than the accessible ride average, though not as fast as the fast ride average
Whilst we will make some allowances, this will not be a 'no drop' ride, therefore please be confident about:
- the distance
- fuelling during the ride
- group riding and taking turns on the front
- having breakfast!
- carrying spares, etc.
- getting home if you need to drop off
Please let me know here in advance if you plan to join, and that you understand the necessary prep
For those with an eye on July, we will cover some of the Dunwich Dynamo route
