Prudential Ride London 100

Message from Barnet Cyclist Talia Ross:
St John’s Hospice has 10 spare places for the Prudential Ride London 100 on Sunday 29th July. They will only go to waste if they are unused, so there is no minimum amount of money to raise, although any sponsorship would be appreciated. However, there will be publicity photos taken. The deadline for signing up is tight so, if you are interested, do email  Romaine Maret at the St John’s Fundraising team: romaine.maret@hje.org.uk

Sunday 18th March: RIDE CANCELLED

Due to the forecast for very low temperatures and snow for Sunday, it has been decided to cancel the Zeppelin Ride.  We will re-schedule this ride as soon as we can – both Charles and Talia have put a lot of time into planning the ride and we would like to enjoy it without the danger of hypothermia or anyone falling off their bike on ice.

 

 

Sunday 18th March: Zeppelin Ride

Charles and Talia take you to places connected with the downing of the German airships SL11 and L31 in 1916, at Cuffley and Potters Bar respectively. Lunch at The Chequers in Potters Bar and tea stop at The White Hart at South Mimms. To give you a feel for the rigours of high altitude flight, Talia will be leading a special “high altitude” ride to Essendon to look at the memorial on the church there. Charles will lead wimps and softies on an easier “low altitude” route.

Meet:   10am Tally Ho Corner, North Finchley N12

or        10.45am outside Waitrose, The Spires, Barnet – Stapylton Road
