Sunday 31 July: Something Different, an Early Morning Ride

A round trip from Barnet into Hertfordshire. 26 miles (42km) at a steady pace (11 mph / 17.7 kph average), led by Kathryn. This ride is suitable for riders who want to keep moving fairly steadily but is neither for beginners nor strong riders wanting to push themselves. Mainly on roads with some hills.

Something different: we will set off early and be back before it’s too hot.

Meet at 8.15 am outside Waitrose at the Spires Bandstand, Chipping Barnet for briefing and bike checks. Ready to leave at 8.30 am. There will be a short refreshment stop at some point. Ride will return around 12.30pm. 

Sorry, but we cannot accommodate children on this ride.

You must book this event here, and 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.

London to Brighton Ride – for Barnet Mencap

DEADLINE TO REGISTER 1st August

Barnet Mencap is offering places on the London to Brighton bike ride on 11th September 2022. The aim is to raise funds to support their work in Barnet. There is a £55 registration fee and they ask that riders raise at least £150 in sponsorship.

Are you looking to take on an exciting cycle challenge? Fancy raising money for children and adults at Barnet Mencap?

On this iconic London to Brighton Cycle Ride, leave the buzz of the city behind and join fellow cyclists as you face the challenge of a 54-mile journey on two wheels, from the heart of London to the buzzing Brighton seafront!

Once out of London you will predominantly cycle along quiet lanes passing through Mitcham, Carshalton, Chipstead, Banstead and Haywards Heath before taking on the challenge that is Ditchling Beacon – a mile long climb to the top of the South Downs where you will be rewarded with amazing views and a water break! From there it’s downhill for the last few miles onto Brighton sea front.

By signing up to this challenge we ask that you commit to raising a minimum sponsorship of £150 per person.

Sunday 29 May: RideLondon Free Cycle -LAST PLEA FOR MARSHALLS

The LCC have had to close sign ups for the RideLondon FreeCycle due to a shortage of marshals (except in boroughs where there are less than 50 sign ups). This is so they can keep the ride size to safe numbers. If you have friends or contacts who want to take part, they can sign up to be marshals. If they have a big sign up of marshals, they can consider opening some of the rides again. If you have friends, colleagues or contacts who are keen to join and they are confident cyclists, encourage them to sign up to volunteer marshal. 

Sign up here:
