Train For London To Brighton On a Fun Surrey Group Ride!
The British Heart Foundation London to Brighton Bike Ride on the 17th June 2018 is a fantastic event, a tough challenge and really rewarding day out on the bike. We're incredibly pleased to be teaming up with British Heart Foundation to help you to train for the event so you can complete and enjoy the day.
Whether you're a novice cyclist looking to build distance and confidence or an experienced rider looking to increase your speed and meet more people taking on the event, we've got you covered. We will have 6 different ability groups so all levels are catered for. Our experience rider leaders have all ridden the route many times, so will be on hand to dish out training advice and tips.
Starting at The Dynamo in Putney we'll meet for a quick coffee and a ride safety briefing/group riding rules chat before splitting into multiple speed groups and heading out on the ride. The more advanced groups will cover more distance at higher speeds, while the novice groups will go slower over a shorter distance. All groups will meet at the same cafe in the countryside for coffee and chat. We'll then head back to The Dynamo in Putney for pizza and more training chat and socialising.
To join the ride just select your speed group and click 'sign up' above. a £1 donation will be made in your name to BHF for the ride.
*Picking A Group
Picking a group can be tough, but you have to try and work out what type of rider you are based on the names of the groups. Are you 'super beginner' (i.e. just bought a bike and started riding), or are you 'steady' (not fast, but can ride at a nice steady pace) or are you intermediate or upper intermediate and have ridden a fair amount before? It's not an exact science sadly, but it's also not the end of the world if you get it wrong - there is the chance to change groups at the start of the ride, and at the halfway cafe stop too. If you're unsure email is or message below.
