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.

Nice! I’m also trapped with Garmin but if I needed one I’d go for the Wahoo. Heard lots of good things :smiley:

So after a few wet and miserable accessible ride Sundays, it seems we might be in the clear for tomorrow. Happy to lead the following, but please RSVP if you plan on joining the accessible ride:

Accessible Ride to High beach with the option of hill loops.
Ride leaders : @Henry,
Date : 25.11.18
Avg. Pace : 21-23kph
Distance : Around 50km
Setting off : Usual spot across from Sainsbury’s in Victory Park at 08:30
Saddle time : 2- 3 hours
Drop? : No drop (nobody left behind) - but make sure you are comfortable with the pace and distance above. The hill loops will be done at individual pace, there and back is no drop.

Hi everyone, I will be riding out to the High Beach Acorn Hut in Epping Forest for our fortnightly accessible ride. Once there, those who want can do some hill loops around High Beech before we head back into town for around 11am. 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 comfortable with the distance and average pace above.

Remember to give your road bike a good check over in advance - tires pumped, breaks working etc - and to bring enough water and snacks to fuel your ride and a 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 temperature has dropped significantly these past days so please make sure you are wearing the appropriate kit: Gloves, Long sleeves or arm warmers, buffs, long tights or leg warmers, winter socks and anything else to help get you through the cold! You will heat up a bit but it’s better to come prepared than to suffer during the ride.

For those who have done a few rides with E20CC before its time to sign up as proper members - Want to join E20 Cycling Club?

See you all there! :smiley:
