Next Sunday is Dulwich Paragon's annual sportive ride in aid of the Lavender Trust, the breast cancer charity.
Those of you who have done this ride before know that it is very well organised, supported and sign-posted. There are two alternative routes of either 60k or 100k - and you can choose which one to do on the day. I'm going to be pootling round but if you are looking for some stiff competition you'll be able to find it at the front of the field ;)
It starts from Herne Hill velodrome and I'd like to suggest we meet up there at around 9?
These are the routes
So far there are only two Windrushers registered - we should be able to get more than this?? But you will have to be quick as entires close at the end of the month or when they reach 500 (and they have over 450 already)
Entry details at www.riderhq.com
I'm entering - whatever the weather.
The more the rain the better!
Will probably be going with the early groups in the vain hope of being able to draft the fast guys.
Now to signup before it sells out
Unfortunately I'll be tootling down the maresme coast on the 2nd (Challenge Barcelona). The ROTFL looks like a great event. I did the long course with the Dulwich Paragon last Saturday - it's a fantastic ride, enjoy! It's definately on my list for next year.
I'm signed up too, although will be taking it fairly easy with a friend who's new to road riding. 9 sounds good for starting - see you at the velodrome.
I'd love to do it and ride again with you guys but I'm away next weekend. See you soon hopefully
John "the Machine" Scotter is on for race no 5 of ironman distance this year
Far from impressive mate. I just hate training, constant events are my warped approach to avoiding it :-)
Who has signed up for this? I am going to forgo the pleasure of live world cup rugby on Sunday morning with the help of sky plus to do the ride of the falling leaves
What distances are people doing and are we all going to get out in our Windrush colours?
Also, weather is looking good coming into the weekend so fingers crossed
