I’ll be leading a hills intervals session on Sunday again. If you’ve ridden previous ones, time to add some reps. If you want to try it, come alone anyway - we’ll encourage you to push yourself, but number of reps is up to you.
We’ll head out with accessible ride then do our thing in the forest. Let me know you’re interested here in advance if you can
Don’t see the type of ride you want to do? Why not plan and lead your own club ride? Give me a shout if you’d like to chat about that
Anyone interested in a short & quick ride on Saturday morning? 66.6 km leaving @ 7.30am ?
I could join you on a ride tomorrow morning if its not too late notice. I’m new to E20 but have a reasonable level of fitness.
I’m training towards a hefty touring trip so need to get some miles under my belt.
Welcome @Sam_A — I’m not answering for @Theqg_QG but just so you know, we host accessible sessions on Sundays at 8:30am as featured at the top of this topic. We strongly advise to come along on one these sessions so you can get a feel for local routes and ability levels. This is to avoid disappointment and to safeguard yourself from joining a faster ad-hoc training ride.
I can’t make this Sunday, but certainly keep an eye on these monthly threads to pick a suitable session.
Please fire any questions and someone will support any queries.
Hey folks, I’ll be around this Sunday and happy to lead the accessible ride. It’ll be a gentle ride up to High Beach. Around 25 miles total at 14-16 mph with no one left behind. Water essential, food recommended.
@jools depending on who turns up we could all do the hill session you mentioned. I’m certainly keen! If some aren’t up for doing 5 loops then the accessible group can do how many feels doable and then head back.
Morning @Sam_A … more than welcome to join me . Unfortunately I won’t go today, still under the weather sort to speak.
I am planning for a ride tomorrow. I will share the details later on today. Stay tuned…
Just a reminder about the accessible and hill reps sessions tomorrow
Would be good to know who’s planning on the hills
We will aim at a +28km/h avg if the Gods of Wind don’t play against us.
Please remember to bring enough gels, water and spare parts. This ride won’t include any coffee stops.
We may chose a different route depending on the weather conditions in the morning.
We leave at 8:30am from the usual place.
Hi Henry. I would like to come out with you tomorrow (19th March) for the accessible cycle ride, as a new member. I have a reasonable/good level of fitness. Hope this is ok. Tim Amor
Pleasure riding/sailing with everyone today! We absolutely tamed those hills, especially the new riders Tim and Beth. @Bethany_Thompson hope you made it back to Manor Park ok!
Til next week.
Planning on the next instalment of early Regent’s Park laps efforts on Sunday at 7.45am (so traffic is quiet). Steady there, five laps effort, one lap recovery, five laps effort, no drafting.
Let me know if you’d like to join (note the time) - once there, you can, of course, do your own session or target number of laps before back to EV and coffee…
Don’t see the type of ride you’re interested in? Why not consider leading your own ride? Get in touch direct if you’d like to chat.
Also - if you enjoyed any ride led by one of our lovely volunteer ride leaders, feel free to give them a shout out here!
I am planning a ride for Saturday, it will be a re-edition of a famous ride led by @jools in May last year (Great Dunmow Ride).
Target Avg Speed +28 kmh
Departure Time : 7:30am
Departure place: the usual place
We have a to be back by 1pm, hence this ride won’t include coffee stops.
If you decide to join us (or any ride in general) make sure of the following:
- to have the route downloaded on your Garmin (charge your device)
- to have spare parts e.g. inner tubes, a pump and / or CO2
- you have done a similar ride before
- plan your breakfast (coming on a ride with empty stomach is not a good idea)
- have enough gels / food for the whole ride (100 km bring 4 to 5 gels + 1 protein bar)
- bring enough drinks
I did and thanks for having me, it was a great introduction to the club. I’ll be back in 2 weeks!
I can’t make Sunday, family duties and all that. I will however be out to High beech early Saturday for some lovely hill repeats and be back by 10.30 so if anyone would like to join just shout, ta.
Aye, sounds good, might just be able to keep up till there (he says optimistically!)
Just bumping this to remind people about early Sunday RP laps and couple of Saturday options above
Please read details/aims carefully and let ride leaders know in advance if you are interested
