I want to start doing some longer training rides in readiness for the Dunwich-Dynamo which I will be doing on my 48 x 16 fixed-wheel road bike.
Is anyone else interested in principle:
Meet up Sunday mornings 8/9/10 some place central, do one 70-80 km circuit of outer London, taking in Greenwich, Richmond, Hampstead parks, etc.
Then repairing to the pub for a pint.
Or if anyone is already doing training-rides that I could jump on the back of, let me know. [Not on Saturdays though]
perfectly happy to ride to a pub on sundays.
I'll miss out on the 80k though thanks, my weekends are for relaxing after the knackering working week at the moment
i would quite like to do some longer rides on my fixed, i did the dunich dynamo last year not at all prepared and only got to the half way point, on my audax. next sunday, isnt that the tour de france in london? if not id quite like to join a ride.
Such was my anger at last night's weather and the non-riding of the bridges that I woke up this morning, shot straight out and ended up doing 55 miles with a couple of pub stops. Only got rained on once, the rest was fine. So - more of these with company would a good thing - As much as I'm keen on doing the Dunwich Dynamo, I do think it's necessary to get a lot of miles and some longer rides under your belt first, I don't want to collapse halfway!
yeah i'm real worried but lazy too...i'll ust take it easy.
But i'm up for some training tho.
I've got club rides on Sundays. If you do something more interesting than riding London I'd be keen.
ie. ride some hills or ride out of London towards somewhere 'different'. It's nicer to have a destination for a ride rather than doing training loops.
