Meeting place: Victory Park opposite of Sainsburys
Target Avg. Speed: 15mph (24kph)
Distance: 25-30m (40-50k)
I’ll be offering* a 25-30mile (40-50km) ride to the Acorn Hut at High Beech, Epping Forest and back. This ride is aimed at road bike riders and has the strict policy of no-one left behind. However MTB, single speed or hybrid users should be regular fitter than average to keep up with the albeit inclusive pace of around 15mph (24kph)
Whilst this ride is accessible, the aim is to push yourself. It’s all about ‘you’ wanting to improve ‘your’ fitness or simply getting back on your bike after winter or recovery from injury. Maybe you have subscribed to Ride London or a charity event, now is the time to get on the bike as Spring is here and you haven’t got any excuses not to ride. We will aim to take in some some hills towards High Beech after taking in some of the forest lanes, with a refreshment stop about half way.
We will aim for an AVERAGE across the ride of 15mph (24kph) - this is flexible based on the ability on the ride itself, ride leader will look out anyone struggling with pace and adjust accordingly.
Regular riders kindly note: I would prefer to join the Mid-Pace ride if no-one arrives for an accessible ride, so any confident regular riders would be expected to make their own way to High Beech or step up for Jools’ Mid-Pace ride. Thanks in advance.
Ok, that’s good to know. Probably a bit late for me then. I have a selfish friend running the marathon and raising loads of money for charity so I said I’d cheer him on which means I can’t make the ride.
