Important notes for Club Rides:

Multiple Club Rides can go ahead on any given Sunday. Members should feel free to post a ride and route at a pace they would like to do, with others joining that ride if interested. There is less emphasis on ride leading on Club Rides as all riders are responsible for themselves and should be familiar with group rides.

Great! Looks like this is going to be a good group, @Matus, @Elina and @karenf.
Here is the official ride post just to include some more details:

Accessible Ride to High beach
Date : 14.04.19
Ride Leaders : @Henry, @MdeBokx and possibly @Sjh
Avg. Pace : 21-23kph
Distance : Around 50km
Setting off : Usual spot across from Sainsbury’s in Victory Park at 08:30 - please arrive a bit before
Saddle time : 2- 3 hours
Drop? : No drop (nobody left behind) - but make sure you are comfortable with the pace and distance above.

Hi everyone, this Sunday we will be riding out to the High Beach Acorn Hut in Epping Forest for our fortnightly accessible ride. This is a NO DROP ride so we’ll all stay together for the ride out and back taking it at a casual speed but please make sure you are broadly comfortable with the distance and average pace above.

Remember to give your road bike a good check over in advance particularly if you haven’t been out on it for a while - tires pumped, breaks working etc - and to bring enough water and snacks to fuel your ride and a couple of spare inner tubes in case of punctures. Please don’t bring rucksacks, locks or unnecessary weight, though helmets are required . The Acorn tea hut sells snacks and drinks but only takes cash.

The weather looks dry but chilly so make sure you are wearing appropriate clothing, such as base layers, gloves etc.

See you all there!

Hi Marinthe, would also be keen to join too, I think my wrist has healed up so should be comfortable to ride, so hopefully I’m about 90% :slight_smile:

Just a quick question, will we be stopping for a short break at Acorn or will it be straight in and out?


#14

Sweet @Jonnym ! That’s good news :smiley: We will have a break at the tea hut.


#15

Hi Marinthe

I’d like to join you too this Sunday, this will be my second accessible ride. Looking forward to the ride!
