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.


Ride notice for 10/02/19

With the high winds and rain, most of us will probably be indoors on the turbo. Some brave few main go out for a ride, if so they will post on the Whatsapp group.


Cambridge to London
Distance: 91km
Elevation profile: Rolling
Intensity: Low
Meet: 8am opposite Sainsburys

With the slight lull in the freezing weather, some of us are riding from Cambridge to Stratford to start adding some kms into the legs. This will be a low intensity ride, so only prerequisite is you can handle the distance through proper fuelling and pacing.

Train times:
8.14am Stratford Int to St Pancras (Southeastern)
9.00am Kings Cross to Cambridge (Great Northern)

Recommend purchasing your tickets in advance.

There will be a slight headwind so a bit of a wind chill; wear appropriate clothing (long sleeves, leg warmers, wind breaker/gilet). Best to remove layers than wish you had some!

Mandatory tyre check: please, please check your tyres for any flinty bits (pry them out with the edge of a flat screwdriver and seal hole with super glue) and make sure tyres are pumped up to correct psi for your tyre and weight. Bring spares and repair kit.

Please note this is not the accessible/intro ride so up to date membership is required. Accessible/intro ride info may be posted later in the week.
