Hi all, I'm planning on running a session on Saturday morning which will focus on some of the basics of cycling, including:
Afterwards if people wish we can go out on a an uncoached group ride (40km-50km) at an easy pace, with a cake stop thrown in for good measure. If you just want to turn up for the ride, please be at the lido car park by 10:45am at the latest. Expect to be back around 2:30-3pm.
NB This will be an uncoached group ride, at a very sociable pace. If you've been worried about the pace of other club rides, but still want to get out of London for a few hours, this one is for you.
If you're coming on the ride please make sure you bring the usual bits and pieces: helmet, spares/tools, waterproof/spare layers if needed, drink, snacks, spare inner tubes ID, mobile phone, money/bank card, oyster etc
It's also worth reading the document below about club riding.
Any questions/suggestions please post below - I'm happy to adapt the session to the needs of those attending.
Thanks Luke this sounds ideal for beginners - but unfortunately I'm out of London for for a week then otherwise I would been v keen (next one!)
But I am doing a 25 mile bike race for charity (www.libda.co.uk/ride) on 10 June if any one else fancy it. There's an elite category for speedsters... and its £15 to enter. I know its not that easy from London but there's a train station in Liphook with trains from CJ. Let me know if anyone is interested (its my first cyle race!)
Really want to do this but I have a work function 1-5pm. Can we come part way on the cycle?
who has work functions on a Saturday?!
Sunday, and it's a 'we're leaving our current office, so lets have a party on Jubilee day cos we've got a great view' :(
Well as the bike session's on Saturday surely not a problem?
Can you ask Len to 'event' this?
Ooooooooh it's on Saturday, I thought it was Sunday...
So Parkrun then ride... yes, why not!
I'm up for this! Sociable pace and cake stop is definitely my style...
