Hi — 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, no-one left behind.
Whilst this ride is accessible, the aim is to push yourself and improve your fitness in a safe and controlled environment.
We will aim for an AVERAGE across the ride of 15mph (24kph) - this is flexible based on the ability on the ride itself, ride leaders will look out anyone struggling with pace and adjust accordingly.
This is a 'no drop' ride, meaning we will wait for anyone who is struggling and work together as a team to reach our destination.

- Take water and snacks during the ride
