I am going to join tomorrow see you at 8.
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.
I hope to make the 100k one too!
Which route James?
About the 100Km ride.
I have two options for the route, depending on how we feel in the morning.
Pro: the coffee stop is in mid-way
Cons: narrow roads and about 900mt climbs
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!
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:
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 ?
Thank you for the ride everyone. Now I’m out of work and can go to rest hopefully some longish ride next week. Maybe train to the sea resort and back ?
F&F Ride Tomorrow (SATURDAY 17/06) Morning
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.
see you in the morning
Will be there.
pancakes with nutella is hardly well fed guido!
I am Italian
Thanks Guido @Theqg_QG for getting your three hour ride into two hours this morning!
(I’ve edited cool photo from @Henry of you and me and put it on the instagram ‘joolsburke’)
