Event description

Had enough of Dennis? Us too - and the weather this weekend looks like NOT A STORM!

So come and ride really far with us. :)

As ever there are two crews -

  • Party will ride 44km and do 588m of climbing at whatever pace
  • Keen will ride 73km and do 1049m of climbing at 20-25kph

When, where?

This Sunday 23 February

Meet at Cafe St Germain, Crystal Palace (loos and coffee!) at 10am for a sharpish departure at 10.30.

Meet at Cafe St Germain, Crystal Palace (loos and coffee!) at 9am for a sharpish departure at 9.30.

There's no set end time, but we usually expect to finish by about 3pm.


  • This route is mostly on country lanes, once we get out of the London 'burbs.
  • There will be hills, glorious hills! We all take hills at our own pace and meet at the top so don't worry - you won't get dropped.
  • There will be time for a cuppa or a pint at the end (and probably somewhere en route as well, knowing us!)

Party: 44km (588m climbing) RideWithGPS Route
Keen: 73km (1049m climbing) RideWithGPS Route

Alternatively, keep an eye on our Cycling UK page.

Our version of a cycling club means:

  • A civilised start on the last Sunday of every month
  • It's freeeeeee (except travel costs)
  • Leaving from various different places across London
  • Cycling in one of two groups; the Keen Crew (20-25kph, 60-100kms) or the Party Crew (whatever-kph, 40-60kms)
  • No one gets left behind and it's totally non-competitive
  • Weather dependant either arriving at a cosy pub, place to wild swim or someone’s house/boat

What to bring on our rides:

  • A spare inner tube for your bike / puncture repair kit (one of us will have a pump)
  • Whatever you need to take your wheel off to change a tyre
  • A breathable waterproof top (this is Great Britain)
  • Snacks - eat little and often (you're welcome to bring a sandwich or food for lunch - we try and find a shop en route as well)
  • Water bottle
  • And bike lights just in case in case!

See you out there!
