London Winter Ride Programme
We have an exciting new ride programme for London this winter introducing a monthly women’s only ride and an off-road special so you can keep reaching your goals and keep the legs turning through the winter elements.
First Saturday of the month – Soho Clubhouse – Kent Ride
Second Sunday of the month – Spitalfields Clubhouse – Women's Ride
Third Sunday of the month – Spitalfields Clubhouse – Essex Ride
Last Saturday of the month – Huck's Cafe Walthamstow – Gravel/Mud Ride
We expect you to be on a suitable bike and clipped in, to carry a pump and all the tools for common repairs, appropriate tyres and clothing for the weather. Make sure you bring enough food and water to fuel you for the ride. For winter we ask all riders to fit their bikes with mudguards and lights.
The group will ride at the advertised speed, and if anyone isn't comfortable with the pace there will be a number of get-out points to safely get home.
We recommend the Tuesday Chat Laps for anyone who wants to improve their pace and skills before attending a weekend ride.
Our other London rides can be found here.
The Women’s Clubhouse ride is a no-drop 70 km spin out into Essex, exploring the beautiful surrounding lanes. Riders meet at Spitalfields Clubhouse for a coffee at 8:30 am before rolling out at 9 am. You will be joined by Clubhouse ride leaders Ilma and Patricia, ride for 4-5 hours and returning to the Clubhouse afterward. These rides represent the perfect melting point for women looking to expand and improve their cycling and group riding skills. Routes will change according to the seasons. The average pace will be 25 km, with riders regrouping at the top of climbs. This ride is for people who have already ridden a similar distance, and are comfortable riding in a group.
