This seems a fitting time of year to swing a leg over and catch up together with a few laps of Richmond Park followed by a welcome late lunch at the Dynamo in Putney. The date is locked in, so get on the winter kit and join us for a lap or three. Invites will be going out formally via Strava to keep things simple for 2019.
For the 2018 season closer we return to our friends at Giro Cycles in Esher for the classic Surrey jaunt and approximately 80km of the finest blacktop on offer. Join us for drinks and refreshments post ride courtesy of Bond Davidson in Esher. Route details to be emailed 24 hrs prior to ride to all attendees.
This will be a classic get on a train and get out of London escapade and we will take on some quiet Essex lanes. The proposed route will be released a week before the ride, but will be around 70 km of undulating terrain. Invites hitting your inboxes soon.
Edit: Essex it is for 2019 then, this ride will be Hertfordshire only. Train to Roydon, smash out 80 km, train back, beers, banter, back home for 6:30. Who is in? Riders will be emailed route 24hrs before ride.
On a mega hot day and as a very tight group we rode into Kent with coffee stop in Chiddingstone. Always a real pleasure riding our in Kent lanes even when faced with a climb up to Crystal Palace. A few well deserved beers were sank after.
Its that time of year again. Knock out laps of Richmond Park, knock back an ale at Dynamo Putney. Job done.
A great time to catch up and discuss 2018 plans.
Meet 12:00 for a 12:15 roll out. If you are late you buy all the beers.
See you on the blacktop...
A wet and wild 70 km in Surrey's finest lanes, with a start at G!RO cycles and a finish with a beer and nibbles at the extremely bike friendly offices of Bond Davidson (thanks Matt!). Last of the 2017 rides and a fitting finish to the end of the BRCC season.
We hope everyone had a great time in 2017 and see you on the blacktop in 2018...
Fully coached session and some fun racing thrown in for good measure. Post track beers at Canopy Beer Co. What's not to like?!
Limited to 10 places, £30 per person, including bike hire.
A unsettled day didn't spoil the fun on the Velo House - Lindfield loop, with 19 riders taking to the blacktop for 70km of quiet Friday lanes. Big thanks to Olly and the Velo House for being so freaking awesome (and stocking some fine beer too).
If this looks like fun, join us for the next ride via the contact page.
On a bitterly cold and wet day eight riders braved the sleet, snow and 40kph winds, knocking out a social 50km around Richmond Park on our annual winter warmer. The km's were naturally followed by refreshments at the excellent Dynamo Cafe in Putney.
Following the success of the Richmond Park Social ride this year we have decided to organise another. We hope this is going to become a bit of a Blacktop January tradition. Come join us for a few laps of Richmond Park and blow out the cobwebs, give the legs a new year spin, with coffee afterwards at the brilliant Dynamo Cafe in Putney.
Meet at 11:00 am Roehampton Gate cafe, for a 11:15 roll out. If you're late just ride clockwise and tag along.
See you on the blacktop...
Big thanks to all the regulars and new riders who made it out for our last spin in 2016. A total of 12 riders took to the Chiltern Hills to enjoy some of the local lanes and ascend the classic Chiltern climbs. After a well deserved stop at Velo Life cycle cafe in Warren Row (thanks guys!), we descended all the way back to Windsor. Some beers may have been consumed after!
Thanks to everyone for supporting the club and see you on the blacktop in 2017...
