The aim of the group.
To give all abilities of cyclist a chance to ride and socialize in a friendly none competitive atmosphere.
Equipment required
A bicycle in good working order!
Each person should carry at least one spare inner tube in case of punctures; assistance will be given if a puncture/breakdown occurs.
All cyclists MUST wear a cycle helmet. COMPULSERY anybody not wearing a helmet will not be allowed on the rides.
Lycra optional!!
Venue
All rides will commence from the Lea Valley Pindar car park, behind Cheshunt Railway Stn Windmill lane , start at 09.45am. prompt.
Car parking is free for those that wish to bring their bikes in/on cars.
We will finish all rides at the Youth Hostel, close to the car park, where we can purchase coffee etc and have a chat and debrief!
Abilities
I want people to be realistic and class themselves as either a Moderate rider capable of riding on/off public roads, willing to tackle hills-even if slowly, and we would aim to cover 20/25 miles in the space of 2 to 2.5 hrs. This would not be competitive and no-one will be left behind.
Easy rider this would be for slower, or less confident riders, willing to ride for 1.5 to 2hrs trying to avoid public roads and using the Lea Valley Parks extensive track system. Again no-one will be left behind.
TIPS
MUST WEAR CYCLING HELMET or cannot cycle with group.
Get yourself insured, recommended, CTC, give good cover, more details on request. Not expensive around £25/yr.
Gel saddles recommended!!
Tyre pressures hard aim for 50-60psi
Slick or less ‘knobbly’ tyres give a smother and easier ride.
Knobblies for winter. Carry a spare inner tube. Help will be given in the event of any breakdown. Nobody will be abandoned in the wilderness!!
Good source for cheap effective cycling gear.
