  • yes please

  • What kind of average speed would this 'fast paced' ride be? If it is not stupidly quick then I will join.

  • I did this for fun yesterday on my road bike from Tower Bridge to Kew. I started about 10:30 so there was lots of traffic... Because of rememberance Sunday parliament square was shut so I had skip Lambeth Bridge (just went over and back on Westminster).

    I took a wrong turn after Tower Bridge and had to add a loop.

    Distance 23.0 mi
    Avg Grade -0.0%
    Elev Difference -29 ft
    Elev Gain 415 ft
    Elapsed Time 01:34:40
    Resting Time 00:03:56
    Average Speed 14.6 mph

    I did it in around 1:35 with a bit of "resting time" (traffic lights) and that was going reasonably quick but not suffering and stopping at traffic lights as I was in club kit. With late night traffic it will definitely be possible to do it quite a bit quicker.

  • I also got strava 9th overall on Albert Bridge Northbound :)

  • I was in club kit.

    Impressive.

    Looks like fun

    (Joe, I'm assuming "yes please" meant you were in at 9!)

  • cheers

  • What kind of average speed would this 'fast paced' ride be? If it is not stupidly quick then I will join.

    I guess between 25/30kms, not fast, just not stopping.

    The pace will ease for people when needed, but they have to haul-ass to regroup.

    The Bridges ride is great, just want to do it quickly for a change..

  • Sounds good

  • I would happily be in, but I do stop at red lights. :)

  • I'm in. I remember doing a Circle Line ride with about 9 others and we thinking we were smashing it around. I think it took only a little more than an hour and twenty or something? That was wicked.
