Hi folks, 1st post on here
I'm a North Londoner who shamefully doesn't know his way around Epping Forest. I have young kids so struggle to balance being able to get away for a ride in the daytime, do you folks ever go out in the evenings?
I'm a fairly keen cyclist with a distinctly average ability - have preference to off road rather than road biking.
I regularly night ride in areas that are slightly more local to me - e.g. Hadley Common and Trent Park - so am happy enough to ride at night and have lights that are plenty bright enough
I have a geared hardtail as my nice bike but tend to ride a rigid singlespeed (badly) in the local slop
keen cyclists with average abilities - you've come to the right place haha. when it comes to off road riding around epping I let the tall man escort me around the wood (or two shorter versions when he's off ill) so I'm not of much help. there might be a few who head out into the woods at night though?
I do get out for the WNKR/ThKR evening rides however, but they won't start again until April and they are road affairs. But outstanding roading riding in the evening http://www.lfgss.com/microcosms/573/ Usually about 16mph average, no more than 40 miles. Great fun.
Hi Ben and welcome to the forum :-)
I used to enjoy riding around Epping Forest in the dark. Perhaps if a few more fancy it ( and my lights still work ), I could organise a couple of night rides in the Spring?
Too bad you're in north London. I know guys who do a regular Wednesday night ride in the Surrey Hills, but travelling from north to there would be a bind.
Besides the excellent rides @BareNecessities does there are rides in the Surrey Hills @Howard and @LHL go on occasionally. Hit them up if you have spare time on weekends.
