Nearly every weekend I head out to the border of Surrey/Kent on my sweet, sweet fixie. #dadlife means these are about ~50 miles long and usually no cafe stop. Thought it might be fun to ride fixed in the lanes with others.
I leave from Peckham and usually get to to West Wickham for 8:30am ish. From there it's usually Layhams, Beddlestead and then differing loops. One example: Layhams, Beddles, Pilgrims, Toys Hill, Star Hill, Ridgeline back to Layhams and West Wickham. Avg speed 15ish to 17ish mph.
I'll post what I'm up to every weekend here.
Tl;dr TNRC in the day time. Sunday 2 Dec, West Wickham 8:30. Put your name down if you want to come along.
Fancy joining the rabble tomorrow for some hills instead of your longer ride?
I'll have a looksee!
I'll be up for a ride when the capo's built, Surly is now in wide bar winter mode.
Happy to join in some time, I sometimes ride there about that time too.
Yep, in for sure!
It would be kinda like a greener version of OKR no?
also keen for some sunday rolls.
back on the bike and going well.
Excellent to hear @skive - you've had a shit time of it with your injuries.
Other interested, here's an idea of what they'll be like:
did the commute on my sweet fixie this morning. haven't ridden the thing in over a year. massive grin on my face the whole way in.
Heading out for ~50 miles into Kent tomorrow a.m. West Wickham for 8:30. Back to SE London by 12:30ish.
can't do this week but keen for next.
Was a good one today!
What sort of gi are you riding to do toys hill etc?
I'm 69 gi (but hopefully gearing down to 66 ish soon), @cagimaha I think was on 76 (?) but he can push a bigger gear than me.
I should get on this. Lemme get some handle bars and stem sorted, wipe of the dust and I’ll give you shout. #dadlife
Nah I'm only on 73" or so I think. 47 x 17.
Strong reflection selfie photo game Dan!
