June 2017 - Cycle Club Training + Leisure rides


#21

I am going to join tomorrow see you at 8.


#22

Anyone who fancies a shorter and slightly calmer paced option I’m planning on doing a 61km route tomorrow - https://www.strava.com/routes/9118566

Not too hilly (though there are hills). Aiming for a 25-26km/h average pace and leaving at 8:30am from the usual spot opposite the Sainsbury’s in East Village.

Probably no café stop but bring plenty of food and drink and we can stop when needed.


#23

I hope to make the 100k one too!


#24

Which route James?


#25

About the 100Km ride.

I have two options for the route, depending on how we feel in the morning.

Original route:

Pro: the coffee stop is in mid-way
Cons: narrow roads and about 900mt climbs

Alternative:

Pro: nice roads overall with 600mt climb
Cons: coffee stop comes just after 37km

PLEASE, have both of them on your Garmin if possible.

Just wanna say thanks for letting me join you guys this morning. Sorry I couldn’t keep up! :joy:

It’s good to see there are some really experienced riders in the club and a pace to work towards.

I’ll definitely join the accessible ride next Sunday but I just fancied a bit more distance today.

Here’s the route I ended up doing:

Lovely route and ride planned by Guido @Theqg_QG this morning. Strong group. Cheers

#29

Great ride indeed and good effort everyone … apologies for poorly indicated the sharp turns …

Lesson learned : to drink more water during the ride especially during the warmest month … unless we want to start a new trend on single-leg cycling

Ps: @neuron … have you made it back fine ?


#30

Really enjoyed the ride today. Good group riding. Thanks for leading @Theqg_QG.


#31

Thank you for the ride everyone. Now I’m out of work and can go to rest :slight_smile: hopefully some longish ride next week. Maybe train to the sea resort and back ?

F&F Ride Tomorrow (SATURDAY 17/06) Morning

Departure 8:00am
Distance: 57.1km
Avg: +28km/h

Usual policy applies:

  • come well fed (last time I had a massive load of pancakes with Nutella)
  • have the route in the garmin as you may have to find your way back home
  • have spare parts tubes and pump
  • make sure that you are physically and mentally fit for such a ride (speed and distance)
  • bring water and gels with you

Please confirm if you are planning to attend.

PS: F&F = Fast & Flat … the ride is meant to be quick and without stops. We can have short recovery breaks.


#33

see you in the morning


#34

(I’ve edited cool photo from @Henry of you and me and put it on the instagram ‘joolsburke’)


#38

More than welcome @jools and thanks to you and @Henry for coming along. The team work in the very last bit of the ride was perfetto-perfetto :slight_smile:
