Sunday 25 Sep: Ride – Barnet to Chipperfield SAVE THE DATE

The ride is going west: from Barnet to the edge of the Chilterns at Chipperfield. It is about 19 miles there as we are keeping well away from Watford which is sort of in the way. It is a bit hilly and of course we will be avoiding main roads and keeping to lanes as much as possible. We are going via Shenley, Bricket Wood and Kings Langley. There is a Garden Centre, with café, at our destination and, should the need arise, we could stop for refreshments on route there or back. Going back will be the reverse of going out as this is the best way of keeping the mileage down. Your leader Peter says he is quite slow on hills now so don’t be put off by that.

You will need to book a place on this ride via Eventbrite.  This will be set up soon and a link will be posted via the website. If you have signed up for posts you will receive this automatically.

Sunday 28 August: Ride – Regent’s Park Laps with Barnet Cyclists

A chance to try out riding in a peloton with Barnet Cyclists, with a ride to this popular cycling destination. Limit of 12 riders. Average 11 mph pace, approx. 30 miles/48km. Moderately hilly on return route to Barnet, some rapid descents down into Regent’s Park, brief refreshments. 

If you’ve never ridden in a peloton before, please read up beforehand and inform yourself about riding positions and signalling. This will be a basic introduction and we’ll take it easy, but let’s try not to have any crashes!

If you’re an aficionado, why not come along and help your fellow Barnet Cyclists learn the ropes? A fun day out, something different.

You must book this event using Eventbrite – see link below. Because there is a limit on rider numbers, you must let us know if you need to cancel, otherwise someone else could miss out. The number to text will be on your ticket.

We can only take riders over 18 years old on this ride.

REGISTER HERE – BOOK NOW TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT!
