Cycling. Individual and Small Groups.
There's some glorious places to ride here in and around London and for a lot of people the focus is on the massive cycling summer event here - Ride London.
Of course this is not the only cycling event in the London and South East region. With cycling's resurgence in popularity there are now plenty of Sportives available to enter and if you're looking for something a little more taxing there's also plenty of racing - if you know where to look. Time Trials, and categorised events can seem quite daunting, intimidating perhaps.
There is also a lively track scene in and around London. Places like Lee Valley Velopark and Herne Hill Velodrome regularly run racing throughout the year for all levels - but you will need the requisite experience and accreditation (for safety more than anything else).
My advice would be to get involved. Nothing beats racing. Even if you get a resounding hiding - stick at it. Every rider in that race will have been in the same position at some point!
Every Tuesday evening we meet at 6.15pm. Every Friday lunchtime at 1pm. It's only £5 per session; sounds cheap, but it certainly isn't easy... Your first session is still FREE!!! Please contact me for more details - post Covid things can change! It's an hour of hard work, but it gets results!
