MID-PACE/DISTANCE RIDE THIS SUNDAY 0815 meet-up 0835 depart
I'll be leading a c 85km ride to Abbess Roding and back this Sunday, taking in some of the Essex lanes. There'll be a few hills early on, but nothing too taxing. Any real challenge would be if it gets really hot or if the weather turns sour (standard British weather warning right?).
We will aim for an AVERAGE across the ride of 26-27kph - this is faster than the accessible ride average, though not as fast as the fast ride average
Whilst we will make some allowances, this will not be a 'no drop' ride, therefore please be confident about:
- the distance
- fuelling during the ride (a general rule is to take on one gram of carbohydrate per kilo of bodyweight, per hour)
- group riding and taking turns on the front
- having breakfast! (porridge + fruit if in doubt)
- carrying spares, etc.
- getting home if you need to drop off
Please let me know here in advance if you plan to join, and that you understand the necessary prep
