Thanks

Similar question to above but for an intermediate speed/distance.

Hello everyone,

So for the Sunday extended ride, I was thinking that it would be nice that we all ride to the tea hut in high beach then split off.

Looks like im going to have a busy saturday but I have some routes that start from near that area.

Let me know what you think, duplicate edit, etc.

This ones abit messy but Im thinking the reverse then come back by brentwood.

I like the idea of being optimistic but for the minute I’m looking weak for long distance riding.

Regards all

Hi all
Jools and I were out this morning as I have commitments tomorrow sorry but hopefully one of the regulars can lead an accessible ride? :slightly_smiling_face:


#6

I’m away so wont be riding tomorrow, have a good one.


#7

The second route has been removed but we have a few other route to choose from. From 50km to 170km lol from 1200ft of climbing to 5000ft


#8

I’m keen for something longer and maybe faster tomorrow. If we decide on a route in advance I can load onto my Garmin or can follow others.

My spider sense is tingling …

Looking forward to tomorrow guys :slight_smile:


#10

Yeah best to play it by ear I guess. The weather could be horrible tomorrow.


#11

5000ft obviously…


#12

Guys I’m running late… I’ll catch up to you… my valve extender got stuck in my rim -_-


#13

Can’t make meeting this morning. Have a good one.


#14

Still waiting at Pastor. Meet us at Epping if we’ve left


#15

Not exactly a ride, but for those who like the track next Saturday is Dave Creasy racing at the velodrome. Starts at 6pm and I think its only £2 to spectate. There’s mens and youth madison races, and I’ll be (desperately hanging on) in the womens omnium.

Unfortunately if you want to see the derny madison, you’ll have to make the trip south to Herne Hill for the Sunday. But on the plus side it’s free to spectate there.


#16

Hi everyone, I hope you enjoyed the ride this morning. I’ve just found out about the weekly rides from Lee and I will likely be joining you next week!


#17

Go Helen :muscle:


#18

Welcome to Yonder @George - We’ve added you to the following groups:


#19

Riding for VCL Helen? I know Katie Styles who says she knows you from Herne Hill. Might well be over to watch


#20

Does anybody want to do something a bit different this weekend? One of the last summery weekends, what about a run out to the seaside?

Obviously there is always the possibility of a ride to Brighton, but I was thinking more something like Whitstable - a bit different, about 100km out, and with a direct train back to Stratford International.

If the numbers were there, a +/- 26 kph ride out, Fish and Chips + recovery beer, then train back?

What do people think…?
