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.

Hi!
I love cycling and have just moved to strats- I only really cycle to commute at the moment but really want to do more. When is your next accessible ride? (And are they hilly?)
Thanks !
Lily

Hi @lilypb - warm welcome to the area! A lot of riders at the club started off as commuters so you’re in good company. The next accessible ride will be on July 8th (2nd and 4th Sunday of each month). We ride up to high beach in Epping Forest which isn’t hilly and once there we can do some hills depending on how everyone is feeling. Hills are a great way to improve so worth giving it a go!

Hi everyone

Suggestion for a club ride below but open to other ideas if people feel this is too long in the heat.

Club Ride 1:
Date: 01.07.2018
Avg. Pace: 26-27kph
Distance: 72km or 92km
Setting off: Usual spot across from Sainsbury’s in Victory Park at 08:30
Saddle time: Around 3-4 hours depending on if we add the extra bit
Drop: No drop - but make sure you are comfortable with the pace and distance above
Route: Epping - Rye Hill - Moreton - Matching Green - Home

This is a pretty flat route out the normal way and then straight up and out other side of Epping. Then after skirting the side of Harlow it drops into proper country lanes up to Moreton where we can stop to refill water bottles. At this point depending on how the group feels we can either head back towards town (making it a 72km-ish route) or push on to Matching Green (around 92km for total route) before looping back through North Weald and back onto the Epping High Road drag back into e20.

Meet at 08.20 for a 08.30 departure

As ever make sure your tyres pumped & bring spare tubes, a pump etc and try to download the route to a GPS. Don’t forget to bring enough food and water for the heat and distance, we can refill bottles at Moreton. And remember the words of Baz Luhrmann and wear :sunny::sunny::sunny: sunscreen! :sunny::sunny::sunny:

#7

#10

#11

My pleasure !


#12

Great ride this morning. 96km and easily smashed the target pace despite the heat (mainly thanks to @Theqg_QG!)


#13

Leading a steady 22km/h ride from E20 down to Richmond Park for a full tour of the Park on Sunday 8th (roughly 55km). Some people have mentioned they’ll be getting the Overground back from Richmond to Hackney Wick so it’s an optional (extra 25km) ride back to E20. All welcome to join :slight_smile: 0800 departure.

Guys I am really in awe ! I am looking forward for the ride. We might want to leave at 7:30 the latest and allow to form 2 groups in case people want to go at different pace.

Coffees are on me to all the riders that manage to reach Cambridge on two wheels.

/G.

Hoping to join this. Was planning a ride today but it’s way too hot and maybe early doors tomorrow will be nicer.
