Seems like there will be a break in the rain and wind this Sunday. Anyone fancy a mid-pace to Blackmore?


#3

Hi I hope I can wake up and join Sunday ride.
Is anybody keen on going for some Epping loops tomorrow around 9 am. I would like to have strong quick ride and I’m happy to have some company


#4

Hello there! I’m interested in joining the accessible rides. I’m mostly a commute cyclist at the moment doing about 12 miles a day but my average speed on a work commute is around 9mph so not super swift but I’d like to get fitter and faster. I’ve been riding for years so pretty confident on and off-road just not a fast rider at the mo!


#5

Hi, I plan to join the group ride tomorrow morning :slight_smile: Former low level competitive cyclist; currently an out of shape dad.


#6

Hi guys

Just some more details on the mid-pace ride tomorrow.

It will be 56 miles (90k) at around 17 mph (27 kph) from our usually meeting place to Blackmore for a coffee. This will be a ride for those comfortable with the distance, pace and fueling during a ride. It will also be a check-out ride, meaning if you need to turn back or slow down, you will need to be able to find your way back to Stratford.

Depart at 0830

Cheers!

Welcome @A_my — I’m afraid I’m not sure who’s leading an accessible ride this week, I’m not around myself, but be sure to keep an eye on this thread for details of plans & happenings


#8

Hi Lee

I’ll keep my eye out. Reckon my CdF 20 can hack it? :wink:


#9

Great ride today everyone. Massive thanks to @henry for leading it even if there were a few dodgy directions called at times - certainly made the strava map look a little more colourful!


#10

Straight forward? Right!.. no seriously right hahaha awesome ride today guys! Thanks :blush:


#11

Thanks for the ride everyone :slight_smile: I will see you all next Sunday


#12

Haha what’s a right turn without a little left turn every now and then. Great ride though, everyone pushed themselves and I thoroughly enjoyed the adventure. See everyone next Sunday.


#13

Hmm, this looks like a very pro bunch of cyclists! I’m not sure my baggy shorts will keep up!


#14

Haha don’t worry! These are the fast and mid pace groups. The accessible is more relaxed.


#15

Baggy shorts always welcome on the accessible ride! Have a secret love for CdFs too!


#17

Hi guys.
I will lead mid pace ride to high beach with addition of 4-5 hill loops.
Please make sure you take plenty of food and drink with you, spare parts etc.
I will target 27-29 km/h avarage as it will be not very long ride.
If someone don’t feel like making so many loops there is a good spot to wait till other finish.
Set of 8.30 am


#18

See you there


#19

I hope to see you all soon lovely ppl


#20

Does anyone know when the next accessible ride is?


#21

I was away this weekend but have nothing planned for next so I should be able to at least make sure there’s a ride up to High Beach. Will confirm nearer the time.
