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.

70km Accessible Ride
Date : 08.09.2019
Avg. Pace : 21-23kph
Distance : Around 70km
Setting off : Usual spot across from Sainsbury’s in Victory Park at 08:30 - please arrive a bit before
Saddle time : 3+ hours
Drop?: This is a no drop ride (nobody left behind) - but make sure you are comfortable with the pace and longer than usual distance above.

Join us for our fortnightly no-drop accessible ride. As we’re pushing towards the end of the summer season we’re upping the distance this week and going for a 70km route out into Essex.

We’ll head out towards Epping Forest, then head round the edge of Harlow before hitting the country lanes and heading back into town. For those with a GPS the route can be download link is e20_-Nazeing-Harlow_Common-North_Weald-_Epping.gpx (275.3 KB)

This is a NO DROP ride so we’ll all stay together for the whole ride but please make sure you are broadly comfortable with the 70km distance and 21-23km average pace.

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.

See you Sunday!

Hi David,

I will be joining you for tomorrow’s ride. I did my first accessible ride in July, so looking forward to this.

Thanks!

Great ride yesterday everyone! The slightly longer accessible format worked well.

@SeaAyeRobson - did you get any decent pics of the ride?


#7

Hey @DavidC,

Is there a ride on this Sunday? :slight_smile:


#8

Hoping so but the weather is looking a little sketchy for Sunday at the moment. Will need to make a call on whether its sensible closer to the time. Fingers crossed.


#9

Hi team. Just seeing if there’s an accessible ride tomorrow. Weather isn’t looking too great, but I reckon I could brave it!
