September 2016 - Training + Leisure rides


#81

Hello everyone, whos going to Lea Valley today?

(also, I managed to break my phone so Ive been off of whatsapp for the last few days)


#82

I am thinking of coming along, probably 6.30pm or so


#83

6.30 see u


#84

So…Whos all riding Sunday and what route length?

I am medium route and I believe my start time is 8:30ish, no change from the regular Sundays then, convenient!

Cheers,

Paul


#85

I’ll be out this Sunday and bringing a friend along. Anything up to 50miles-ish is good for me but happy to do longer or shorter.


#86

Sorry @modboy I should have been clearer there. I was talking about L’Etape london!

I think there’s a few of us getting involved in that! Not sure who is still doing normal Sunday rides.

Cheers,

Paul

My bro and I are doing the 92 mile course, 8:35 am start. Look out for my red bike and (knowing my brother) full team sky kit!

Got a couple of friends doing the full course - they leave earlier but are scary fast, so I expect to be overtaken by them on the drag back in to London…


#88

Doing the long route
#fatladattheback

Also look out for stuart shepherding people on the last run home


#89

This is true, I’m helping any nervous cyclists home back to the velodrome from Loughton area. Have pulled muscles in my legs so could prove interesting…


#90

I’d forgotten about l’etape. I’m feeling pretty ill atm and am doing a hill climb in a few hours, so I imagine that tomorrow will be spent lying down feeling poorly. Might see the other non-etape people tomorrow.


#91

Good man for volunteering!

A fair bit of rain is currently predicted for the morning guys, here’s hoping that changes!


#92

I am in for a medium or long ride. Shorter if wet…


#93

@aahj I could possibly meet you two in the morn round the corner on victory parade before pulling out into the masses on Olympic park avenue ?


#94

Outside Pavé at 7:50?


#95

Plan B. If a load of people are doing the etape I will make like the mighty bear and start to move indoors to hibernate for winter. Warm and dry velodrome > Heavy rain / traffic


#96

So just to confirm, is anyone doing the normal ride tomorrow morning ?


#97

I would like to join a normal ride if there were someone familiar with the routes. Are there four or more keen for this?


#98

I I’ll be out tomorrow at normal time with a mate.


#99

After looking at the etape times and route, I would sadly suggest to either ride another route (in the complete other direction) or postpone the ride completely. Personally, I wont be taking the risk so I’m off to Regents park. Hope you all enjoy the ride either way :slight_smile:

The routes seems to be hijacking our back yard! I will be doing laps of Vic Park instead. :worried:
